Ojos del Salado to Pissis traverse

Ojos del Salado (6,893m) is the highest volcano on Earth and the second highest summit in South America. Pissis (6,800m, unofficially) is the second highest volcano on Earth, and the third highest summit on the continent. Basques Jabi Txikon and Arkaitz Ibarra linked both summits in an astonishing 240km traverse, between January 22 and January 31, 2013. Unfortunately, both received some frostbite.
