High altitude breathing apparatus


If anyone here is interested in contributing either directly or by suggestions to High altitude breathing apparatus it would be very welcome, as I do not have access to any useful climbing sources, or if I do, I don't know what they are. Please ping with replies. Cheers, · · · Peter Southwood (talk): 14:54, 30 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

We have rarely used O2 canisters with demand BVM to optimize for 'recycling' the high exhalation CO2 & O2, but generally only for ('death-zone') medical or tactical "emergency use". (I would rather not climb where I think these risky, cumbersome, & troublesome systems are likely needed for me.)
There is also the use of preconditioning (CO2/O2/N2 stressing) equipment, typically used in conjunction with a sleeping tent. Boldklub-PJs (talk) 22:42, 6 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

English term for Goulotte


Hi, What's the proper English term for fr:Goulotte (alpinisme)? There is no article on English WP, and no category on Commons yet. Thanks, Yann (talk) 21:07, 28 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

There isn't really a direct translation into English mountaineering as far as I know. A couloir is a wider snow/ice covered gully (there is often the definition that you can ski down a gully/couloir, but there are narrow couloirs/gullies). 'Couloir' is widely used in en-mountaineering.
A French goulette is much narrower than a couloir, and typically one person wide and more ice than snow. I have heard 'goulotte' used in Scottish ice climbing, but ice routes that are like goulettes can also be called "ribbons (of ice)", "seams (of ice)", or even "drains (of ice)". Some just call them "very narrow couloirs". Not as widely used in en-mountaineering as couloir, but is used. Aszx5000 (talk) 01:26, 29 December 2023 (UTC)Reply
