Its a balancing act I suppose. If I take on something too tough I miss out, too easy and I miss out on testing myself. I'm just trying to find something that is just right.

Dont be afraid of the difficulty, the problem i had when i was there was a really short acclimatization time less than two weeks. But normally, there would be no problem if you are in good condition.
Also an advice from my side, you can rent gear in Kathmandu, also in Namche Bazar, or buy some gear for a cheap price.
