I managed to climb the Aconcagua. Last week Saturday 27 February I was at the top. During the entire climb I, partly due to acclimatization through the height tent, had no problems with altitude sickness. Thank you Altitude Dream
+ 6000m | Aconcagua
I did notice an effect. The first night I was not prepared for sleeping in the height tent. When installing it was said that you had to drink a lot and I hadn't done that that day. A dry mouth in the morning. I do not know if this is somewhere on the website otherwise you could state this in advance as a point for improvement. Positive effect: in the Aconcagua base camp (4200 meters) my saturation was pretty good: 88. Of the 11 fellow travelers, one was 89 and another 88, the rest were lower.
Service was super! I think that I was less likely to suffer from altitude sickness when climbing the Aconcagua.
I already used the height tent (sleep high, train low) twice as preparation for a trekking / ascent up to 6200 meters. As a preparation for trekking and climbing at great heights, a huge advantage (quietly acclimatize at home at your own pace). So no problems in the mountains with headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, no symptoms of altitude sickness. On previous climbs (up to 4200 meters) without the use of the height tent, I did have the above-mentioned symptoms (headache, fatigue, dizziness, etc.). Furthermore: VERY professional, clear agreements and correct delivery.
Your service was good. Delivered correctly, picked up. Sufficient explanation about the operation. Maybe next time deliver the training schedule together with the device. That came a day later. The height tent allows you to adjust to the altitude from home. In 9 days we were at the top of the Aconcagua which is quite fast. Because of the preparation in the height tent, I hardly had any problems with altitude sickness, unlike others who had to give up because of this.
The climb went very well. On December 29 we were at the top of the Aconcagua at 6962m. Our height tent will have played a major role in this as all other members of our expedition have not reached the top! Thanks for the good service.
I have reached both peaks, both Mera peak (6461m) and Island peak (6189m). As the only expedition member without a diamox! I have not had a headache for a day from where the other participants in the ibuprofen were. The height tent has certainly contributed to this.
Excellent service and good additional information. I can say that I have walked / climbed enormously well. At a height of 3400m my saturation was 99%, the doctor was surprised. And even at a height of 4300m my saturation was still 90% after a brisk walk. I felt very strong throughout the trip. I think it helped and I reached the top of the Aconcagua. Thank you for your help.
