Three no hopers from Lancashires grimmest corner (Burnley) set out for Bolivia?s Cordillera Real in search of 6000m glory. This hysterical journey begins with acclimatisation problems where one member of the team (Gaz Howell) turns into a Scouse Wookie whilst the others opt for the more tradition AMS. Stunning mountain routes (Pequena Alpamayo) take a side line to the hilarious northern dead pan humour which our team of lunatics use to overcome illness, frostbite and endless hours at base-camp.
Bandits, donkeys, climbing and full-frontal adventure, delightful!
