Longtreks – Episode 7: High Altitude

Just got this from Adam, Episode 7!

Persevering onward after Aaron’s flesh wound, and a medical stop in Pucuio, they challenge the 3rd mountain pass, climbing 70kms in 1 day to a plateau amidst 18,000 ft plus snowcaps. Flabbergasted with oxygen deficiencies, and cold headwinds, this episode shows how exhausting high altitude really is. The three dirty compañeros aventureros endure a night in the negative degrees, sleepless at nearly 4000 meters. Their boards, tents, and backpacks are covered in frost in the morning, and they must straddle alpacas all night for warmth.
