comment Flashlight or headlamp for night hiking?
I don't really know what you mean by bludgeoning using a flashlight. Most of the times the flashlights are light and small in size. Not the huge metal ones (they are less preferred due to size and weight). And regarding comfort of headlamps, I've used headlamps umpteen times without any discomfort. Also, using a flashlight means your arms are not free (at least one of them).

comment What should I do with possible frostbite: Swollen feet after putting them in warm water
@BenediktBauer I agree that when an immediate answer is required, posting a question here doesn't make sense. But as Liam pointed out, answering the question will help others in similar situations. No harm in having the question here. If you still feel unsatisfied, please close the question so that others can air their opinion on the same.

@WedaPashi Just saw some blogs on saser kangri climb. Man it looks awesome! All the best! And do get a guide. Looks technical to me.

comment Walking through a Thigh-high snow
Which region of the himalayas is it? In my opinion there are too many variables in the form of fresh snow, altitude, wind and inclination. Sounds too risky.
