  • For the first time, one book combines the science of the body's responses to high altitude with the accumulated wisdom of experienced adventurers. Author and high-altitude climber Mike Farris presents in-depth coverage of how heat, cold, dehydration, emotional factors, and exercise affect human performance at altitude - and how to prepare for them. The science of high-altitude biology is explained in a clear, accessible format and supplemented with real-world examples.Look inside for answers to these questions: What changes will take place in your body at altitude? How might your body respond? How can you train for altitude and improve acclimatization? What social and psychological factors are likely to affect your experience at altitude? What can you do before, during, and after your trip to improve performance? With practical advice on topics ranging from picking partners to picking food to picking up the pieces when things don't go as planned, "The Altitude Experience" is your go-to resource for exploring the beauty and exhilaration of the world's high places
