Complete Newbie, is this an achievable goal or am I crazy?

Hi all,

As the headline states, I'm a complete newbie to mountain climbing - I've done quite a bit of hiking through some rough Australian terrain and a little easy climbing (never needed any gear) but otherwise have no experience.

Hydration Tubes Freezing

Just had a thought for those trying to use hydration systems in winter and dealing with all the different tricks (blowing water back down, insulating, tucking in jacket, etc.) to keep the tube/bite valves from freezing.

Boot fitting

I want to buy a mountaineering boot for Aconcagua/Denali. I'm looking at La Sportiva G2 SM (from what I read it should be warmer and lighter than Spantik).
I reached out to a european outfitter and the sizing of the g2 is the same as Batura so I would be pretty happy to order from them, but here comes my problem.
I live in San Francisco area, and I am unable to find anyone who ...
