Height seeking mountain climbers need to be aware of the dangers of UV at higher altitudes. Paul Ridley of Row for Hope shares his Mountaineering experience with us. “In the thin air climbers encounter above 10,000 feet there is often no hope of protection from clouds, and the thin air and reflective snow makes for dangerous sunburns. While climbing I’ve been sunburned on the roof of my mouth, the underside of my nose, and inside my nostrils.”
