The mega-tour screens at 200 venues in nine European countries. The programme is a special two-hour edit of nine of the world’s best adventure sports short films and documentaries.
The London audience at the RGS will have the added bonus of a live, on-stage interview with climber David Lama who summited the 6,251m ‘Nameless Tower’ in Pakistan, also known as ‘Trango Tower’, part of the Karakoram mountain range, alongside Peter Ortner and Corey Rich in ‘A New Perspective’.
The incredible footage was partly shot with remote-controlled helicopter cameras using drone technology more usually associated with US spy planes than climbing expeditions. Check out exclusive You Tube clips on Mammut's Peak Project:
The rest of the programme is equally as awe-inspiring:
- Mountaineers Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk attempting the climb of their life in ‘The Shark’s Fin’, scaling the 9,000m granite wall of Meru in central India just six months after Renan seriously injured himself in a skiiing accident.
- French singer ZAZ climbing Mont Blanc to give a mini-concert with her guitarist and bassist singing ‘Je Veux‘ at 4,810m.
- Red Bull’s eagerly awaited freeride mountain-bike epic ‘Where the Trail Ends’ with Darren Berrecloth and co pushing themselves to their limits.
- King of the Slackline ‘Sketchy Andy’ back-flipping on a highline. It’s part insanity, part genius and totally unmissable.
- Whitewater master Ben Marr literally playing with fire on some of Quebec's most notorious rapids in Skip Armstrong’s latest, most mystical kayak short ‘Shapeshifter’.
- Xavier de la Rue on a mega Alaskan snowboard adventure ‘2112’;
- Two Australians driving themselves to the edge of Arctic madness on their custom built inflatable vehicle in ‘The Crossing’;
- The breath-taking ‘Birdmen’ jumping off mountains and skimming cliffs in their proximity flying wingsuits.

Ulf Michels from EOFT tour organisers Moving Adventures said:
“We’re delighted UK ticket sales are going so well. Britain has some of Europe’s best centres for adventure sports and we can’t wait to bring the tour to UK audiences for the first time ever.”
“This is two hours of the most intense experiences, the most emotional journeys and the best action adventure you’ll see on film this year.”
