Honestly, being an amateur rock climber, I’m in the same boat, but how the hell are they going to get power up there for dependability.
Solar power sure is a great option, but I was under the assumption that repairs will be hell to put it bluntly.
Batteries in that cold of a climate is also a regular trip. which doesn’t seem feasible, unless there’s something I don’t know.
