Chimney itself was 10-15 feet tall. I think we ended up lowering the packs in about three or four stages between the chimney and the one ledge. To be honest, I would not worry about things next week. We were coming down and had no real problems on

Viagra and its class of drugs are USELESS for AMS. It only has mild benefit in HAPE, a completely different high altitude illness. maybe I should add a bit more: Viagra can reduce pulmonary hypertension somewhat, and altitude/hypoxia-induced pul

Keeping food out of your tent cannot be overstated. I stupidly left a ziplock with about one M&M and one peanut in it in my pack in my tent at Trail Camp. A marmot ate an entry hole AND an exit hole in the tent, ate through the pack, and took a
