Over 350 kilometres away from their destination of the Antarctic’s remote Gothic Mountains, climbers Leo Houlding (UK), Jean Burgun (FR) and Mark Sedon (NZ) landed by plane to embark on an ambitious, modern, and innovative expedition.
During this 50-day self-supported trip the team endured extreme temperatures, whiteouts, and challenging winds – with a 21-hour non-stop ascent of the Spectre via a new route – before their 1700 kilometre return by kite-skiing and sled.
Watch the intense trailer to their epic expedition below.
This time last year we’d just left the end of the Earth to begin our 1300km journey home. So good to see #spectreexped film finally ready and hitting the festival circuit. @alastair__lee worked his magic on @mark_sedon @jeanburgun & @leo_houlding footage and so far everybody seems to be loving it. Bet you’ve never seen anything like it? Watch this space for screening info and release set for early next year! #gameofthrones #snowkiting #alpineclimbing #bigwall #endoftheearth #21stcentury #exploration #polarexplorer #antarctica @berghausofficial @wallyherbertaward @scarpa_uk @roam
