An epic to end all mountain epics, set in the stunning mountains of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The feature documentary follows top adventure climber Leo Holding with his tried and tested team of Jason Pickles and Sean 'Stanley' Leary as they attempt to make the first ascent of the North-East Ridge of 'the masterpiece of the range' - the majestic Ulvetanna Peak (2931m). A technically demanding climbs in one of the world's harshest environments.

The films tells the story of a climber's life-long dream to reach one of the world's most remote and difficult summits interwoven with the fascinating story of the mountain itself, which incredibly was only discovered in 1994. All set against the backdrop of the current age of mountaineering where few great lines remain unclimbed.

Every inch of this daring journey is captured by multi-award winner Alastair Lee as we get to know the redoubtable and hilarious team. The team experience unprecedentedly good weather but eventually the harsh conditions begin to grind them down as inevitably the conditions become 'less favourable' whilst they attempt to defy the odds and complete the climb.

Including interviews from Sir Chris Bonington, Doug Scott, Conrad Anker as well as Norwegian climbers Ivar Tolleffsen and Robert Caspersen, who first explored the area in 1994.
