Ulvetanna (“the wolf’s tooth” in Norwegian) is the jewel in the crown of the Orvin Fjell mountains on Queen Maud Land, Eastern Antarctica. It’s considered to be the most technically demanding peak on the harshest continent. Between December 2012 and January 2013, a team led by Leo Houlding, including Alastair Lee, Chris Rabone, Sean 'Stanley' Leary, Jason Pickles, and David Reeves, made the first ascent of a new route up the north-east ridge of Ulvetanna. The Last Great Climb shows the team climbing over a mile in temperatures as low as minus 30, and building an ice cave as an emergency shelter.
