Coolest thing to do in November- Worldwide?

It seems that November sucks, everywhere. Prove me wrong. Where in the world is there sweet climbing in November? Alpine, long routes, slogging, don't matter. Except maybe sport climbing. Like, reliable climbing. I know you can make most seasons work most places, but I'm talking about the best conditions. For instance, if someone's making their one big pilgrimage to Yosemite Valley, looking for the best conditions, they'll come in September and early October.

How high could a climber get above 29,000 feet?

I'm using the rounded height of Everest!

But supposing the highest mountain on earth had been a lot more than that.

What height would it have to be to make it unclimbable?

Or would some sort of specially adapted "space suit" have been developed specifically for climbers to make the top section climbable.

Gonna have to make assumptions about the terrain at the top of such a mountain. i.e not a very difficult technical section.

I'm curious if a route, on sandstone, could be weathered enough over the span of say, 10 years, to affect the original rating.
