Length / 50mins

He thought he was going to shoot big wall climbing in Yosemite but after an ‘epic failure with visas’ Ian Burton travelled to Nambia to have the biggest adventure he and fellow adventurer Andy Cornfield can have with almost no money and no guide book at only a few days preparation.
