The film follows Leo Houlding's ambitious project to make a first free ascent on the North Tower of the incredible Mount Asgard on Baffin Island deep in the Arctic. Leo teams up with fellow big wall climbing god, Stanley Leary, the duo they 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.
