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 Is a varied diet necessary while backpacking?
It might be a good idea to specify - roughly - the amount of time you're going to be backpacking. A few days, or more than a week? A few weeks?

comment What can I do to prevent altitude sickness?
@xpda - As far as I know, diamox doesn't treat the symptoms of altitude sickness at all - on the contrary - it doesn't prevent headaches from occurring. That's good; the headache is the first symptom you want to notice when trying to decide whether to continue to ascend (don't if you have one). But Diamox isn't magic; if you ascend enough, you're going to need to give your body time, and there's no way around that.

comment What is a good starter kit for beginning indoor climbing?
Yes, I'm referring to indoor bouldering. The place I go to has the entire floor of the climbing area padded. Spotters don't appear to be mandatory.
