  • Alpine Climbing Nutrition

    Alpine climbing nutrition can pose one of the biggest challenges for mountaineers.  Research has shown that climbing at altitude can burn 6000 calories per day.  When alpine climbing, the body must battle the steep elevation, thin air, and cold – all while carrying heavy loads. However, food intake by alpine climbers at altitude has been shown to fall by 10-50% depending on the speed of ascent, the individual’s tolerance, and conditioning.  Climbers must also struggle with bulky clothing and the likelihood that the exertion and altitude can greatly reduce the desire to eat.  Alpine climbing nutrition is particularly important because, unlike many other endurance sports, the alpine climber must get themselves down the mountain.  Rescue on a big mountain can be dangerous and take days, especially in bad weather.
