As a distractor from long, heated threads, and mountain person - gym bunnies get to altitude and implode routinely. If you want to be in shape for mountains, climb lots of stairs. I guess gyms have stair masters. Even dinky hills around here in Aspen get the heart to 90% MHR easily. So you need to work at getting to and maintaining high heart rates. Advance acclimation helps also.

But this *requirements* thread is about acclimation, planning and anticipating the challenges of the climb. Serious climbs may involve days or months of this. So if the analogy holds, a lot of advance work has to be done before ARM actually is promoted to primary. This isn't the go, no-go meeting, or gear-up time. This is the shopping list.

Now the ultra ridiculous: How about secondary architecture requirements demoted as-is to tertiary. And create substantially more aggressive requirements for secondary architecture (in which ARM would be placed), yet are not identical requirements to primary architecture requirements?
