comment Fine tuning the Warm-up routines at Higher altitude
Looks like we have different notions of the intensity of trekking. I for myself wouldn't put it into the "rapid and/or vigorous movements" group.

@OlinLathrop That's obviously the approach of someone who is familiar with maths, periodic phenomena, and the concept of phase! ;-)

comment How to cross a 25 feet wide Crevasse?
I fear that question is a bit broad, as there are many different widths of crevasses from narrow enough to just step or hop across it to a full-grown bergschrund and very different conditions from rock-hard ice to powder snow. Therefore the techniques and equipment can vary widely and a single definite answer might get quite extensive.
