@Liam en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savandurga -- There are some more similar to the one mentioned. Although they aren't as big as the one mentioned. (The rock is a mix of granite and laterites)

Interesting. Although it makes you look like an alien wearing a space goggle.

It certainly does. But always know that snow blindness is not permanent. I'm not sure about the claims of cataract.Cornea damage caused by snow blindness heals itself by the third day.

comment Flashlight or headlamp for night hiking?
@OlinLathrop same here. Never found a use for a club while trekking. But if Mitstah has found use for it, then go for it. I haven't met anyone using a flashlight as a club. Having said that, world is huge and you never know what others use a flashlight for.

comment Flashlight or headlamp for night hiking?
Honestly I would never carry a hefty flashlight just Coz it can be used as a club. Its weight/size disadvantage outweighs the club like usage aspect. I don't see any sense in using any flashlight as a safety weapon.

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.

Improved the question by moving the question to the body of the question from the title.
