Video: Climbing 12 6000-Meter Peaks in the Andes

Mountaineer Max Kausch has set quite a goal for himself. He hopes to climb all of the 6000 meter (19,685 ft) peaks in the Andes, of which there are more than 100. In this video, we join him on that quest as he attempts to knock off 12 of those peaks in a single go, an effort that requires strength, endurance, and dedication. As you’ll see, things don’t always go as planned, but that’s usually what makes an adventure a good one.
