There's a spot I could drive you close, within 200 vertical feet. Altitude sickness is a factor
I've had altitude induced headaches a couple of times but I got hit pretty bad by altitude sickness on my snowcock hunt. I had to come down. However, I live at 18 feet about sea level so I may be more susceptible than most folks.

That’s the elevation at the top of my roof.

A buddy of mine tried to hunt up there with me, he got light headed as soon as we hit around 9500 ft so we turned around. Did shoot a couple blue grouse on the way up.

During deer hunts I just about die the first couple of days. By day three, can run around like normal.
They sell oxygen in a can intended for quick recovery while working out, it's great for hauling deer in the Rubies since I am now olderly. Instead of five or ten minute "breathers", one minute works.
