1200 meters vertical at 71 degrees north: the Mirror Wall

“I quite like how obscure this thing is. It’s not the biggest, it’s not the best, it’s not the tallest, it’s not the most famous; nobody knows about this thing. It’s quite unique within this landscape: I like things that stand out.”

The first words off Leo Houlding about this documentary film on climbing the Mirror Wall, a 1200m slab of vertical rock in Greenland. Leo has done many, countless climbs all over the world, but this is the first one he attempted as a dad. And that changes things. Certainly, when a softball-sized granite rock hits Leo as he is resting in his hammock suspended off the cliff, destroys his sleeping bag and realizes the rock could have been bigger.

Watch the full length below. And see if you can spot the African Ninja 😉
