What Do You Know About Altitude?

Posted on: November 19th, 2009 by Erik Lambert

Altitude is a topic common to all climbers and this month we’re especially focused on it: A new exhibit, “THIN AIR – An Exhibit on Altitude and Oxygen,” just opened in the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, CO. Click here for details on the museum exhibit and information on the opening reception, which will include a presentation by mountaineer Jake Norton on the George Mallory expedition.

Brush up on more of your altitude knowledge with 5280 Magazine’s fact-filled article spread, “Low on O2,” in the October issue. The articles cover a number of topics from AMS to acclimatization to a fantastic highlight of the Altitude Research Center, with which many of our members are closely affiliated. They should be – we as climbers have a vested interest in altitude’s effects.

Be sure to also check out the issue’s interview highlight with Tom Hornbein, a longstanding AAC member and current Chairman of the board of the Altitude Research Center, known for his many high-alpine accomplishments and a famous bivy at 28,000 feet on Everest.
