Boiled eggs at 9000 feet

I’m surprised the recommendation is not to bother boiling eggs at
9,000 feet. My house is located at 8800’ in the Colorado Mountains.
If I place eggs in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil, turning
off the heat and letting them stand in the hot water for 12 minutes,
results in lovely hard-boiled eggs. Brilliant yellow yolks, with no gray.

I’m going to experiment with soft boiled eggs soon. I think I’ll
drop them into boiling water and let them sit for a few minutes —
probably do 5, 6, and 7 minutes to see how the yolk comes out.

I’ll keep you posted!
