High Altitude Training 2015-16

In 2017, we plan a trip to South America. One of the highlights will be climbing a summit at 6000m altitude. To prepare for the trip, we exercised in the Alps.

Around Rudolfshütte, Austria (August 2015)

We started at an altitude of 2300m. Around the hut are several lakes, so we also had a chance for apnea diving at an altitude above 2600m.

Monterosa, Italy (August 2016)

The next step led us into higher regions. We stayed at 3500m for several days and climbed above 4100m. Unstable weather conditions didn’t allow us to go higher.
