Alexander Barber is a high altitude mountaineer whose tick list is characterized by solo ascents, without sherpa support, and without supplemental oxygen. These include Cho Oyu, Manaslu, and most recently an attempt on Annapurna which was cut short by the Nepal Earthquake. Alex is member of the American Mountain Guides Association and formally a guide for Rainier Mountaineering.
I think anyone who summited with bottled oxygen - they may have gotten to the top, but they didn’t actually climb the mountain. They didn’t meet the mountain.
Since the Soulo's free standing construction allows it to be pitched almost anywhere, and since it is remarkably light and tremendously strong, it is ideal for almost any adventure. Mountaineers, both recreational and professional, will take to its strength and low weight, as will backcountry hunters and winter campers.
According to Alex, "It does so much for me: It's my camera and I turned it into my satellite phone as well. I can access social media with it. It has an easy way to put in micro SD cards so I can bring movies and TV shows with me at base camp and up on the mountain. And you can pop in extra batteries so I'll carry two extra batteries and the phone will last for a week."
