What do you badass mountaineers sleep on?

So I have zero mountaineering experience but I've started to get back into backpacking for the first time since I was a teenager. I want to start doing it regularly but I'm having some trouble figuring out what bedding I should use. I distrust youtubers and amazon reviews and would rather ask people that are experienced. When I was younger I would go on several scout trips and most of the time wouldn't bring anything to sleep on (we mostly did summer trips) and for the most part it was perfectly fine. Now that I'm older though I have bought a handful of pads both cheap and expensive and my sleeping results have been the same: I'll take a bunch of melatonin, fall asleep within an hour, and then wake up an hour later and not fall back asleep again.

How do you remedy this problem?

I have heard that a lot of mountaineers just get used to sleeping on hardwood floors but I'm not sure if my SO would be okay with that. I am very tempted to just start sleeping on foam pads when camping even though the internet recommends against it. I'm willing to immediately put my comfort aside for a long term solution. What would you suggest?

Thanks!

When I beat a NES game, I make arbitrary rules I can't do like: No dying, or not using weapons to win. Do you mountainclimbers do this after you climb a challenge to make it more challenging?

Do you make new rules as you climb to make it tougher. Apart from not dying of course, that rule is always in effect.

new to mountain climbing

Hi all, I went Austria recently and went for a tour around the Alps and that has sparked my interest in mountain climbing.

I live in the UK where the mountains are no where near as big as those in the alps but I want to start small and plan to climb a small mountain in Southern Wales called 'pen y fan'.

I am an active walker and am relatively healthy with no medical conditions that would hinder me exercising, I want to know what clothes I should get and what safety procautions I should.take, I know pen y fan is not tall but it will be my first attempt and want to know any tips you guys would have before starting

Thanks.

Hikers and Climbers Research Project

Hello :)

I’m Aleks and I am a student at Ravensbourne University London. I am currently working on a project that revolves around the in-store shopping experience for hikers and climbers. I am looking for participants for a focus group where I would like to ask some questions and gain an insight into how you buy hiking apparel and equipment. If you are free this weekend (Looking into a Sunday 15th of May 11 UK time) I’d love to meet you through zoom :) Drop me a message at aleksandrasuder98@gmail.com or comment your interest. Can’t wait to hear from you!

Aleksandra

Is mount everest an affordable venture or really just a wild dream?

Keen hiker from Scotland here.

Always wanted to do Mt Everest and suspect I'm not the only one. It's not the fitness and 02 adjustments that put me off, it seems to be the astronomical price!!

Has anyone done it and got any stories to tell?

Cheers

Why we Should Shorten Mt. Everest

Hello mountain climbers of Reddit...

Today I would like to bring forth the topic of Mt. Everest, and the problem that exists with its height. Mt. Everest is known to many as the tallest mountain in the world, which allures many to try and climb it. However, Everest is too tall, and many can't make it to the summit. I propose that Everest be lowered a few feet by the use of dynamite, as this will make it easier to climb, while also allowing it to remain as the largest mountain in the world. Much like the end of running a race, the final stretch is always the hard part of the journey. By reducing the height of Everest by a few feet, the final stretch of the journey to the mountain's summit will also be easier. I have already contacted Xi Jinping, the leader of China, about this matter and expect his full support in funding this effort. What I need now is for the mountain climbers of Reddit to spread the word of the problem. We must inform the public about the threat that Everest poses to the avid climber, and how we can stop. We will solve this problem, no matter what it takes...

Thank you,

A Concerned Human...

We must reduce the height of Everest back to what it once was, as it has become too tall...

Inspiration For Book

Hello climbers of reddit! I am writing a small book about the fearless people who conquer monstrous mountains. I was hoping some of you would like to share your craziest/scariest moments during your ascents that I could use as inspiration!

Door frame

In theory, if someone were to try to be able to hang from their door frame using just their hands/fingers, how would they go about getting strong enough to do that while in quarantine?

Quality carabiners?

I am not a mountain climber myself, but I was hoping someone could recommend a quality carabiner brand? I would like to replace the carabiner on my large dog's car safety harness, for something stronger and more reputable. I figured if anyone knew about carabiners it would be a mountain climber. Any help would be much appreciated.

Climbing Invention

Hi. Me and 2 other friends of mine were given the task of creating a product for our Engineering Design course in high school. We must go through the engineering process and create a product by the end of May. We have made a survey and we would appreciate it if you could spare 30 seconds of your time to help us in this process. Thank you.
