Asgard Team Reaches Mountain
Leo Houlding's climb and jump team has reached Mount Asgard, stunning pics too.
Posted: 12 August 2009
Leo Houlding's Asgard
- the aim is to climb one of the hardest big
walls in the world on Baffin Island and then BASE jump back to camp
while being filmed along the way - and have trekked in to Mount Asgard
In a novel twist, Leo, Sean and Carlos, the team's three climbers
actually sky-dived into the national park, saving themselves a five-day
walk-in in the process, but the rest of the team trekked in on foot.
Supplies have been taken in by snowmobile while snow was still lying on
the ground earlier this year, but reading between the lines, it seems
that more equipment was delivered by air drop.
In the process of this, two of the project's portaledges were damaged,
so two of the team had to return to Pang to collect more Portaledges.
As you can see from the image above, the location is absolutely
stunning and there are a lot more images to check out at the Project's
web site: www.theasgardproject.com
More details when we get them.
