The Line – Episode 6

by ROAM

After trekking up the Miracle Highway, the team arrives at Advanced Basecamp (6,340m /20,800ft) and begins the next phase of their expedition. Cory and Topo spend the next few weeks exploring the route and acclimatizing on the established route, discovering new challenges along the way. As summit day draws closer, every decision counts.

“Part of what I’ve tried on this climb is to not regret, you know like, now there is no excuses for not giving our best. Now we need to put substance into our dream” – Esteban “Topo” Mena
