Gear consultation - Aconcagua and beyond

I'm looking forward to next year since I plan to try Aconcagua and hopefully return to Nepal for Baruntse.
Since I'm not a very experienced climber at all (been to 6k at most in Nepal with newbie gear), I do want so advice from you guys.

I did some gear restock this year. I have some questions about purchasing more/better gear and about my current stuff:
- I have the summit series Northface Himalayan ...

FS: Marmot Thor 2p tent

I have a practically unused Marmot Thor 2p tent for sale. The original rainfly was "misplaced" a couple of years ago, and I bought a brand new one from Marmot that has not seen any weather at all, except to take photos in my yard. Burly tent, as I'm sure everyone here knows. And expensive too, as I'm sure everyone here knows. It's been used 3 or 4 times total, in perfect condition with all ...

Fitness Benchmarks for Denali

I'm looking to improve my training for Denali. I'm looking specific fitness benchmarks. For example each branch of the armed forces has their own PFT standards. Anyone, particularly those who have climbed Denali, have suggestions about specific fitness standards to aim for?

For example: mile times or interval times (as a gauge for MaxVO2 output), pushups, pullups, bench, squat (reps/weight), etc.

I realize there is no substitute for pulling a massive sled up-mountain through snow ...

Youngest female to climb lower 48 state high peaks

My name is Lucy Westlake and I am 12 years old. Does anyone know the record for youngest female to climb all of the lower 48 state high peaks? I started climbing the state high peaks at age 7.
