When you reach the "death zone" is it really noticeable? Or is it all just really hard and high altitude.

I've noticed when hiking my local mountains that at 10,000ft the altitude really hits me (I live at sea level and it takes me 4-5hrs to get up to 10k) 8k and 9k I'm fine but once I reach that 10k mark and I really feel the altitude.

Thanks for answering, might be crazy but high altitude mountaineering sounds like my kind of "fun". My current high point is ~13,000ft on one nights rest usually if I get reasonable aclimitizing time I do fine. hopefully I get a chance to try Everest, but I have smaller mountaineering goals like Rainier to keep me busy and learning.
