a perfect chance.... maybe too perfect

I had Mt Ararat on my list, but LP disencouraged it. And there was the chance all the sudden. Three days on the mountain, my first small 'expedition'. Poor material, average organisation, but very experienced company. Worth the try.
After two cold nights (one night 15 cm of snow, in a tent without malfunctioning door zip!) and not enough foot, I got stuck at 4800m height. I was out of breath, my heart raced as if it would explode and my feet just didn't want to move any more. And then 2600m to go down the same day!! My toes hurt for 4 days afterwards,but it was a great experience!
