Introduction

15 mins, Director: Natasha Sebire, Australia.
Three Australians journey deep into Siberia to the town of Bilibino, home to an antiquated power station, to climb in a nearby area of untouched granite walls. Although the trio nearly didn’t make it there due to Russian bureaucracy, they found amazing climbing out in the wild tundra. With a short climbing season they experienced bitterly cold Siberian conditions when winter arrived early.
