Sounds easy, but Gear is a different story. Tent, Proper sleeping bag, good backpack, stove that works at higher altitudes, and so on and so fourth. Not everyone has been in game as long as most of you, so collecting gear pays a price as well.
This past summer, I did Rainer, Adams, St. Helen's, and Mt. Hood, Also traveled to Crater lake, and various parts of the OR coast. I have family out there, so in all, it cost me 1,500.00 for three weeks of bliss! Best 15 hundred I ever spent! (Granite they had an extra car and gave me free lodging for an exchange of work around there house!)
Gear was the most expensive cost for me since I'm new to more alpine style climbing.
Right - but if he doesn't have gear then he'll have to add that to the cost for the Aco climb as well. Either way, CO is much cheaper...
Yes, and a lot of us are willing local partners/guides with an extra mattress and gear for loan.

Looks like a good year to go. Most of the local guiding companies are discounting their expedition costs due to lack of interest this year.
