I think I should get one too since I always spill on myself when drinking out of Nalgene bottles!

Did he actually hike this, or did you carry him up?

How does he handle the elevation? looks like he's quite content to me.

He did it himself. This is the trip report

At age four, he has hiked up to 14 miles a day, up to 4,000 feet elevation gain in a day, and has climbed 5.4 routes. It just takes patience and practice, and if the child loves the outdoors, they can do amazing things.

How does he handle the elevation?

Fine so far, but we are very careful. We take time to acclimatize. This November we're attempting a 5672 meter mountain, but will do a 100 mile/10 day hike first in the area to make sure we're fully acclimatized.
