Allan, I live in North Vancouver and have begun my training regime for Denali. I was originally planning on waiting until 2005, but could be ready in time for this year.
Missed summit of Aconcagua by 90 feet (stormed off) January 2001. Practiced on Rainier often for another Team I was leading to West Buttress in June 2000. Due to a serious marine accident 1 month before the climb, I had to drop off the team.
I trekked to Kangchenjunga, Nepal for 22 days last October, so my fitness is actually quite good.
Let's talk if you are interested. I would be willing to go as a 2 member team. How about you?
