Topic - Can you simulate altitude for training ?

paul walters - on 08 Sep 2013
I'd planned Mont Blanc for this year but wasn't able to go. Mate of mine did go, but despite being much fitter than me, struggled with the altitude. My attempt will be September 2014, but I'm worried about the effect of height since apart from a planned trip to Toubkal in April, I'm not likely to get any other exposure, and I'm not sure how I'll react in the Alps. Is it possible to simulate low oxygen levels without actually going to height ? I've seen a neoprene mask advertised on the Net from a company in USA, but I'm pretty sceptical about that. Any thoughts anyone ?
