    For Uphill Athlete team:

    I’m considering purchasing the 24 weeks mountaineering training plan and my hope is to use this plan to prepare for a potential no Os attempt on one of the 8000-ers in near future. I’ve already climbed to the top of Manaslu and Everest with supplementary oxygen, and have decent base fitness to start with. I was wondering whether this plan would be a good choice?

    I understand that no Os attempt on an 8000m mountain is not just about having supreme physical fitness, but a combination of several things. However, consistent and smart training is where I would like to begin from.

    Yes that 24 week plan will serve you well for training for an 8000 meter climb with our supplemental O2. As you are well aware fitness plays a big part but there are many factors beyond your control that can affect the outcome. However having as high a fitness level as you can manage will give you the best chance and it is one factor that is completely within your control.

    Good luck,
    Scott
