Well, what were your uncomfortable symptoms from which you originally "adjusted"???

 

What is your plan going forward?

I've been forced to learn about it from being very sensitive to altitude. Trip to the winds hiking into Gannet the first day goes quickly above tree line and stays there.  I camped at the first water, which was a literal swamp.  I wasn't going another step. It does seem to get better with age, maybe because of decreased activity.

I'm still curious about high high iWill (did I get the user name right?) lives.  A Hct of 57 is pretty spectacular. Lance Armstrong could have saved himself a lot of trouble if he lived there.

I'm only living just over 10,000, but was doing 14ers weekly over the summer, and pounding out 2000' of uphill daily. That HCT was higher than would be "normally" expected at 10k, but my resting heart rate is now around 48bpm at 10,000', and rarely breaks 90bpm at 14,000 while climbing 1800'/hour.

 

I'll have it tested again this fall, and I expect it to fall back to closer to 50. The 57 may also have indicated dehydration.

I'm at 10K feet and my Hct has gone from 51-52 over the last couple years to 54+ a couple months ago.
