On the big day, carb up and take plenty of drink. With this preparation, a friendly guide, OK weather and a head for heights, you will have a good chance of making the summit. The dangers are unrelenting and the scale is bigger than you might imagine, but all the holds are there. It's as mentally hard as it is a physical challenge. The most intense 10 hours of my life, but when it's over you will never regret the experience. Stress on your job will never seem as bad again. E-mail me if you have questions. Good luck.
