Gasping for breath in thin air, watching clouds congeal on a jagged southern horizon, Elliot Boston wasted only a few moments in savoring his victory. He stood alone on the rocky peak of Aconcagua, the highest point in the Western Hemisphere, and knew he was closing in on a dream. The 22,835-foot slab of Andean rock and ice loomed high above anything he had climbed before--half a mile above his last big climb, Mt. Elbrus in Russia. But in mountaineering, triumph is rarely a clean emotion.
