Synopsis: The Asgard Project follows Leo Houlding’s ambitious project, with fellow big wall climbing god, Stanley Leary, to make a first free ascent on the North Tower of the incredible Mt Asgard on Baffin Island deep in the Arctic and then descend from the summit via wingsuit. Arriving late in the season the trip soon begins to go wrong. After a spectacular arrival, skydiving over Mt Asgard, conditions turn against the team where just reaching the base of the climb becomes a massive challenge.

The film produced by multi-award winner, Alastair Lee, is an all out spectacular, documenting a truly cutting edge adventure with all its twists and turns.
