" I suggest going out to the nearest pub and getting completely, and utterly, wasted. Make sure you smoke at least 1 pack of unfiltered Camel's. Get the full ashtray, pour a drink in it and then pour the mixture into a water bottle. When you get home" - ideally around 3:30am stick the vile mixture into your freezer. Put on your best goretex and thermal layer. Climb in. At 5:30am, get out, drink" - chew- the mixture and go run the biggest flight of stairs you can find. Run until your heart threatens to explode. Your dehydration caused by the alcohol should adequately simulate what you may experience at higher altitudes. Your lung capacity should be sufficiently impaired by the smokes to simulate a oxygen poor environment. The freezer episode should adequately replicate a bivy. Drinking the booze/butt mixture should simulate your lack of appetiteU. Oh " once your finished your workout, go to work" - to replicate the long walk out." - Greg Hamilton suggesting the feeling of climbing at altitude

For the gritty mountaineer, it was time to fight another day, but not before she egged on her husband Ankur Bahl to unfurl the Tricolour on the summit. India’s first mountaineering couple had added another scalp to their list—Mount Denali in Alaska, the highest mountain in North America, bringing them closer to their dream of scaling the seven summits (the highest mountains of each of the seven continents).
