comment Arm compression sleeves for climbing
@Charles: You rightly said *when the compression of the cuff exceeds your blood pressure, blood flow below the cuff will stop", and then you said, "It doesn't have anything to do with increasing blood flow through the arm".. Personally I find that it has got all to with the Blood Flow, and I was trying to prove a point about effects of Compression on Blood vessels.

@BenediktBauer: See the edits, I was having a word with my sister while I was typing, I knew the end result about Blood flow, didn't know the HOW part of it so couldn't add up the complex data then and there itself. Hope it answers the question now.

comment What is the best mountaineering quote that you have ever read?
@Everything: Makes sense. I got into some serious mountaineering when I was 17 and I think the credit goes to the mountaineering books that I read just out of curiosity. Some of the quotes inspired me a lot, some incidences (written in books) drew me mad about mountains. This was where I began..

comment When should you use gear to climb a tree?
@BenCrowell: I wish I could award you a bounty for Fear tends to go away with familiarity and repetition; danger doesn't. This is why people take avalanche courses and then go out and get killed by avalanches -- familiarity makes them think it's safe Very well said!

comment How to detect a crevasse on a glacier
Oh, that sounds good. If you focus the part that you are going to add up, specifically for detecting a crevasse, that would be really helpful. Knowing about the type of crevasses is a bi-product unless you don't steer it in the direction of where to expect a crevasse
