We roast at about 5,000 feet, but don't make any real adjustments
beyond listening to the cracks and watching the bean color.  Seems to
work fine, but your mileage may vary.

I am at 5400 ft. I have had to reduce the temperatures significantly for my
iRoast 2. I worked with hearthware's customer support to figure out a
profile that had 1st happening at around 6:00 minutes. My initial attempts
at a profile had the 1st happening around 4 minutes. Full city would be at
6.
My current profile looks like:
330/6 minutes
370/1:30 minutes
330/remainder
A city roast usually comes out around 7 minutes.
A full city roast comes out around 11:30.
Good luck! I am curious to see what you come up with.
