Dow Williams wrote:Which is a good thing Josh. Best advice I could give to someone like yourself, is to focus less on the name of an objective and much more on the experience. So many wilder, scenic and wicked places to climb than Aconcagua and Denali. The more you delve into the talent (technical) aspect of getting up a wall or mountain, far less folks, trash and government intrusion you will find. Cheers.
