Yesterday I was hiking in partly deep snow where postholing was inevitable. I had no problems until one moment when I was getting cramps in the femoral. Luckily it was close to the end of my tour and walking got easier because the snow height decreased. But if this wasn't the case and I had to hold on for hours I'd been in trouble.
What can I do to quickly get rid of cramps so I am able to get to the camp or the end of a hike?
I think dehydration plays a major role here so I would pause, drink and get some calcium if I have. What else to do? Which drugs are helping?
