Has anyone ever used their DSLR's for high altitude mounatineering? I am talking about extended climbs like Aconcagua (2+ weeks, up to 23000').

Most climbers use Nikon FM3A's or similar. I will be attempting Aconcagua and was curious. Will a D200 (or D70, D2X, whatever) be up to the task. There must be more to it than just batteries.

Any thoughts...
