The latest story in Apple’s ‘Your Verse’ series on the iPad is all about how the tablet is used by a pair of mountaineers – Adrian Ballinger and Emily Harrington of the Alpenglow Expeditions group.
The iPad is one of the essential pieces of kit that accompanies the climbers all the way to the summits they reach. One of the most impressive things uncovered in this case study is that the iPad is used by the climbers all the way from the early planning stages of a climb right through to the final ascent.
At each stage of the climb, Ballinger and Harrington reduce the gear in their packs. So as the climb becomes more difficult, they’re carrying only the most essential tools. And because it’s a crucial part of how they navigate the mountain safely, the iPad makes it all the way to the top.
It’s a great piece, with lots of fascinating details on how the climbers work and how he iPad fits into their expeditions. Check it out at this iPad Your Verse page.
