“The North Face of the Eiger is the single climb I have most coveted in my entire life. It’s within my capabilities, but will take me right to the edge.” - Steve Backshall, 2016
Join Steve on the climb of his life. 64 people have died trying to conquer the iconic North Face of The Eiger, but climbing it is a lifelong ambition. This vertical mile of crumbling rock and ice is the biggest challenge Steve has ever faced but in true Steve style, there will be fun, excitement and the familiar fearless approach we have seen through out all his shows.
Steve (along with Leo Houlding – his climbing partner) will have continual critical decisions to make. The best routes, timings, gear, when to rest, when to push on and some of those decisions will inevitably be wrong which they’ll have to deal with too.
The dangers to overcome are loud and clear and we will be with them every step……
The BBC are planning to commission this as a LIVE Event and a totally new way of doing adventure. Digital assets including As Live stream and Virtual Reality 360 films of the most terrifying moments will be available.
