It’s always great to get other’s perspectives instead of relying on what I see in my camera lens!

When Ya Gotta Go…
Going to sleep at Barafu Camp, already down to 23 degrees at 15,000 feet. The coldest I saw was 8 degrees at Crater Camp at 18,500 feet, which was probably -30 wind chill with the crazy wind up there.
Our guides had us check our oxygen saturation morning and night. Starting somewhere between 96 and 99%, we could see our saturation drop as we gained altitude. It’s also interesting to see your heart rate go up to try to provide more oxygen to your body, usually I’m around 47-55 resting and my resting rate was in the 80s at altitude.
Clay watching his oxygen saturation drop. Despite being healthy, in shape, and having done other high altitude climbs, he was the unlucky one of the group with low saturation throughout the climb. Always fun to watch a doctor self-diagnose themself!
