The Asgard Project is an astonishing film that follows Leo's ambitious project to make the first free ascent of the North Face of the incredible Mt Asgard on Baffin Island deep in the Arctic. Leo teams up with fellow big wall climbing god, Stanley Leary (USA), the duo hope to make a wingsuit descent from the summit. 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, turns, blood, sweat and tears.

Prior to the Baffin Island expedition the excitement builds with extreme training trips; Speed-climbing in Riglos, Spain, Wingsuit flying in Monte Brento, Italy and free climbing on El Capitan in Yosemite; Leo will need to be at the top of his game to face his biggest challenge yet.
