When climbing above 8,000 m, in what is known as the “Death Zone”, air contains 30% of the oxygen at sea level, causing brain function to deplete making it harder to think clearly. Combined with the urge to conquer the summit, climbers are inclined to ignore bad weather signs and keep climbing.
This poor decision-making can get them caught in high altitude storms, a number one killer amongst climbers. Ventus measures various weather data to anticipate an upcoming storm and alert the climber to descend to a safer spot.

Designed for extreme environments
By analyzing the temperature, barometric pressure, altitude and wind speed, Ventus predicts the upcoming weather and can easily signal the climber if he should continue to climb and conquer the summit or descend and wait for a better opportunity.
