    Hold Fast

    Jim Aikman (2017)

    While making a summit attempt to an unclimbed peak in Nepal in 2016, Conrad Anker suffered a heart attack. With his climbing partner, David Lama, able to do little more than look on, Anker self-rescued from 20,000 feet. It marked the end of his long and storied career as a high-altitude mountaineer, but not his passion to climb. In Hold Fast, Anker returns to one of his favorite big wall climbs — El Cap, in Yosemite National Park. With him is Alex Wildman, an ardent amateur climber and close friend. The good news is that Wildman is a cardiac nurse. But he has never before climbed a big wall. And he has a serious health concern of his own.

    Greenland - Ice Mountain

    Rosie Gloyns (2019)

    Episode of Expedition with Steve Backshall, a series in which the naturalist and explorer Steve Backshall takes us on a mission to visit parts of the world yet to be explored. The episode shows the second part of his arctic adventure. After kayaking the largest fjord in the world, Backshall attempts to summit an unclimbed mountain deep in Greenland’s Arctic wilderness. He faces many hazards - from rivers of freezing meltwater to quicksand and treacherous glacial ice. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet which means Greenland’s ice sheet, over two kilometers thick in places, is melting. The climb lets Steve and his team look over an ancient habitat living on borrowed time.
