Reminds me of standing on the summit of Orizaba in January and realizing I was the highest person (insert pot joke here) in all of North America at that moment. It was a pretty cool feeling.

Exactly. And all of my problems are not really that important either. :D

Well said! I was fortunate enough to notice several years ago that my problems disappeared while climbing. Of course, most of them are still around when I get back, but the day-long respite is pretty damned nice.
