Steve Backshall's Extreme Mountain Challenge
Tuesdays at 8pm, from Tuesday 29th August

Writer and broadcaster Steve Backshall embarks on one of his most dramatic expeditions ever. His mission is to ascend one of Venezuela's Tepui - an ancient, table-top mountain. With an elite team of rock climbers, Steve attempts the first ascent of an unclimbed wall on a remote Tepui to search for wildlife on the summit. But nobody could have predicted what would happen, nor the kinds of decisions they'd be forced to make. A white-knuckle ride from the start, the team encounter river rapids and hazardous wildlife, and survive a close shave with a rickety biplane.
