Video: Poco Loco – Climbing In The Peruvian Andes (Pt. 2)

Yesterday I shared part one of a new series of climbing films that follow a team of Dutch climbers who traveled to the Peruvian Andes to put up a new route on Puscanturpa Este, a 5440 meter (17,847 ft) peak that had to be conquered along its North Face. The team spent three weeks climbing the new route, naming it Poco Loco after they successfully completed it.

In Part 1 of the series we saw the team traveling all over Europe to train for the challenges they’d find in Peru. In Part 2 which you can watch below, the crew travels to Peru and makes the long journey to Base Camp. Along the way they experience the colorful culture of the country before setting off into the rugged backcountry for their ultimate objective.
