What would happen if you just--you know--went and CLIMBED it?
No acclimatisation, no faffing, no preparing... just go and do it. (I'm assuming we're talking about someone who's fit and competent already.) Fly out, get to the Hoernli or wherever the night before, go up it, get down, have a beer, go home.
I imagine the answer to my q is not "You would die horribly." I imagine the answer is more like "Unless you're immune to altitude, it would hurt, but you could do it if you were strong enough."
Yes, no, maybe?
