Leo Houlding: from Everest to Reality TV

Fresh from the summit of Everest and the filming of a reenactment of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine's Everest attempt of 1924, Leo Houlding continues to supplant his mentor Sir Chris Bonington as the darling of the mainstream media. Leo, a Berghaus sponsored athlete, has several TV, film and internet video credits to his name as well as being a world-class climber, mountaineer, slackliner and para-alpinist.

After appearing in the BBC Extreme Lives documentary 'My Right Foot', that charted Leo's recovery back to fitness after a career-threatening accident and racing Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson in the Verdon Gorge, Leo will now be presenting a "a global adrenaline-fuelled adventure for a new reality show" that will feature young people, " wrestling with African crocodiles and learning headhunter skills in Papua New Guinea."
