I like hiking and treks- I've done "rifugio" (mountain hut) treks in Spain, Italy, Austria, Chile and Nepal. I've backpacked with tents in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, India and the U.S.

Lately I've gotten into bouldering.

comment When buying a backpack, what should I pay attention to?
This article describes the process of picking a day/overnight pack in great, great detail. He goes a little overboard in mentioning the one pack he chose to recommend, but the article is full of useful tips.

There's a good explanation of this phenomenon in this answer.

Your answer cheers me up! But does the atmosphere dilute all the harmful radiation? Conceivably, the atmosphere could cause a general dilution of radiation while still allowing a relatively high proportion of "harmful" rays to pass. (For example, diluting 90% of UVB rays while only 10% of (possibly more carcinogenic) UVA rays)

There's something called "Naismith's Rule" which says that if your walking speed is 4km/h, you should add a bit over an hour and a half for every 1000m you climb and about three quarters of a hour for every 500 meters you descend. You can use the calculator in the link to make your plans. But you have to know about how fast you normally walk.
