Video: Katabatic - Episode 3

EpicTV has released the third episode in their outstanding Katabatic series. These videos follow explorers Mike Libecki, Freddie Wilkinson, Cory Richards and Keith Ladzinski as they go into the Wohlthat Mountain Range in the Antarctic in search of unclimbed peaks. This is a part of the world that has seldom been visited in the past, and what these four men discovered there is almost completely uncharted.

In this episode, the team discovers a mountain that they decide they want to climb. It is a shark-fin peak that would be daunting in almost any environment, but in the Antarctic, where the weather can change in an instant, it turns into quite an ordeal. This is extreme exploration and adventure at its finest, at the Katabatic series is allowing us to watch it play out right before our eyes. Amazing stuff to say the least.
