LOne recommendation -- if either of you are prone to altitude sickness, consider arriving a day before the hike.

I found out the need for this advice the hard way :-(

Actually, if you really are prone you need more time than that. Part of the weakness you feel is your body going into overdrive trying to produce red blood cells. It some ways it is like recovering from an injury. You need a few days for that happen.

One old mountain bike racing trick for people who train at low elevations if you don't have time to acclimate is to show up immediately before the race so that does't happen.
