The Ultimate Climb
This one-off special tells the remarkable story of British student mountaineer Geordie Stewart and follows him across the globe as he attempts an extraordinary challenge; to climb the highest mountain in each of the world's seven continents. Ever since he was a teenager, when he was inspired by the efforts of Bear Grylls, Geordie Stewart has been fired by a hugely ambitious desire - to climb the highest mountain in each of the world's seven continents. Last year, he attempted to fulfil that dream - and Discovery followed him every step of the way. The Ultimate Climb is an absorbing one-off film that features exclusive access to the footage Geordie shot on his epic quest. It includes breathtaking moments from his pioneering mission, from the mind-numbingly cold temperatures of Mount Vinson in Antarctica to the swamp-like conditions of Carstensz in New Guinea. The cameras track Geordie as he embarks on the greatest test of all, as the intrepid explorer tries to complete his seven-summit dream, by climbing the highest and most famous mountain in the world: Everest. If he can achieve his goal, he will set a new record becoming the youngest Briton ever to climb all seven summits. As he undertakes this Herculean endeavour, we viewers can only look on in awe.
