Ascent Trip ReportPerfectly fine until rushed up the last day, I think the guides wanted us at the summit for sunrise. I started to get sick at around 19000 and couldn't go more then a few feet before wanting or attempting to vomit. I am going to go back and reach the summit! Did pretty well considering it was the first mountain I have ever climbed and that I smoke a pack a day.
