You will need to boil a hell of a lot of snow for a sufficient amount of water and I am not totally convinced of it's dependability at high altitudes. I have a Jet Boil myself and love it but in my opinion it is well worth the extra weight of a MSR XGK.
I was amazed at how well Jetboil performed while guiding on Aconcagua. At 19,000 feet using the Jetboil made things so much easier.
We were . . . a little anxious to see how they would do at 20,000’ and above. I always knew that we would be able to count on the stoves working; what I was really concerned about was the fuel. Well, everything worked as if we were using it at sea level.
We used the Jetboil in Camp 2 of Baruntse (21,500’) . . .

And, not to forget, a great ice cream parlor at the corner ten meters from El Refugio.
