Did learn that some of my trusted butane lighters do not work at altitudes above 9k feet. Not sure why but i have two that worked great before ascension and then fine when descended. The venerable bic worked every time. I had my exotac and of course the flint died when i used it the first time. I think ill be carrying more flints for a backup. Maybe fluid too just in case.
^^^^That’s why a bic, another bic, a 6” ferro, and another smaller ferro is my fire kit (plus knowledge of how to use a bow drill)
Can never beat skill and preparedness vs technology and convenience.
