Leo Houlding - Reflections: The Mirror Wall


Leo Houlding is a world renowned climber for audacious ascents of epic faces, documented in award winning movies including The Asgard Project, The Wildest Dream and The Last Great Climb. Twenty years of extreme adventures have taken him from BBC 2’s Top Gear to the top of Everest, from devastating injury to major world firsts and from terrifying BASE jumps to glorious summits of the most remote and difficult peaks on every continent. In 2014 Leo fronted a major Discovery TV adventure series, Lost Worlds. The following summer he led a successful expedition to a magnificent and massive cliff in Arctic Greenland known as the Mirror Wall, his first major expedition since becoming a father and the loss of his great friend and partner Sean ‘Stanley”  Leary.

In this new show, Leo discusses the contrast between adventure TV and adventure film and reflects on the conflict between a life of extreme adventure and the responsibilities and homely joys of fatherhood, juxtaposed against the undying drive for the next great quest through the narrative of his aptly named Mirror Wall expedition.
