Episode Description:

Persevering onward after Aarons 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.
