Andes 6K+ E4: When Navigation Goes Completely Wrong

It’s time to approach Cerro El Cóndor near the town of Fiambala in Argentina. Climbing down the mountain proves to be even harder on the team as they struggle with navigation.
Thousands of kilometers away from the closest civilization footprint is where the mountain climber Max Kausch feels at home. Riding an adapted motorcycle to approach and climb all the 6000 meters peaks in the Argentinean and Chilean Andes, will he be able to become the first person to do it?

During 2 months on an unbelievable journey, he climbed a different mountain every 5 days, either wearing a kitchen apron, taking dangerous shortcuts, or sewing his own stitches.
Maximo Kausch has overcome robbery, avalanches and bone fractures in search of a world record: to reach the top of all 12 mountains above 6,000m in the Andes with his adapted Mad Max-like motorbike.
