comment Walking through a Thigh-high snow
@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.

+1 for describing about the reasoning behind thigh-high snow.

comment Walking through a Thigh-high snow
+1 for the avalanche/crevasse dangers. I don't think climbing in thigh-high snow at 20,000+ ft is advisable. Unless of course you have absolute guarantee of safety in terms of well established routes with no known dangers.

comment Does low blood pressure have an effect on Acute Mountain Sickness?
The possibility of brain getting less oxygen due to low blood pressure seems possible. Why completely rubbish his claim? If thought from a common sense perspective, it looks feasible that someone with low BP might face symptoms early. I might be wrong. Pardon me if I am.

comment Are headaches a bad sign at altitude?
@Eyal Yes you are right. But when the altitudes are below 4000m, 1000 should be fine enough. The higher you go, the lesser you gain per day. Hence, beyond 6000m per day you can gain only around 500m.
