The ascent of the Pic de Posets (Spanish Pyrenees), a challenge for seasoned sportsmen, a feat for Cédric Andrieu and Eddy Estripeau, suffering from three severe chronic diseases. The first contracted two cancers in two years, the second lives with hemorrhagic colitis, combined with COPD, an inflammatory lung disease that forces him to perform several sessions of respiratory physiotherapy per day, and ankylosing spondylitis, a disabling joint pathology.
