FRI NIGHT VIDEO - Big Wall Climbing in Africa

Our film this week is an expedition to the 'armpit of Africa' - namely the island of São Tomé and Príncipe, just south of Nigeria. Gareth Leah from the UK attempts a first ascent on a beautiful volcanic pillar, which he found by googling 'super-villian lairs' and 'tower of Mordor.' The film encapsulates the extreme highs and lows of a painful expedition into the jungle, where basic tasks such as eating, drinking and sleeping become difficult.
