The only climbing experience I have has been with a guide. I know it will take me sometime before I have the gear and knowledge to do large climbs without serious help, but I would like to go back to high altitude again. I mostly do 3 season type outings and I have a pretty tight budget, but I do not want to make purchases that will not be useful down the road. I'd rather wait and buy the right thing than end up needing to purchase another piece of gear to replace something that will not cut it under extreme conditions. Thanks for your help
I recently purchased a Primus Gravity Multifuel Stove. I haven't received it yet, but I do not know how to evaluate if it will be the right stove for climbs above 15,000 feet and the conditions that can be encountered. I know it will do white gas, but I'm sure there is more to it than just having the right fuel. How can I figure this out? Here are the manufacture specs.

I also purchased the Seira Designs Omega 2, 4-season convertable tent. The reviews I have read are pretty good, but I don't hear from anyone that has taken it in very extreme conditions. I am worried about the amount of vestibule space and wondering if I should try to switch it for a tent with a jake's foot.
