So I’m lucky enough to have several climbing partners who snore more than I do. Loudly. Like sleeping next to a three hundred pound pig with a chronic case of congestion. It gets old really fast – trust me.
The obvious answer is earplugs but given my track record with alpine starts I like to use a watch alarm to give me a better chance of getting an early start. Earplugs, alarm. Not a winning combination.
But I think I might have a solution… It got me thinking what would I do if I was deaf and needed an alarm? Turns out that you can get a watch with a vibrating alarm. There are several specifically for the hearing impared. Casio also makes one for hunters.
I’m taking this to Peru so we’ll know if it works in a week or two.
