Disney has released a trailer for the new National Geographic documentary series, “Arctic Ascent With Alex Honnold”, which sees the star of “Free Solo”, Alex Honnold, embark on an epic quest of unclimbed walls in one of the most remote corners of Greenland, a country on the frontline of the climate crisis.

Honnold has always dreamed of exploring Greenland and its unclimbed peaks. Now he and world-class climbers Hazel Findlay and Mikey Schaefer attempt to summit Ingmikortilaq, an unclimbed Arctic seacliff that rises out of the frozen wilderness and is nearly 1,000 feet higher than “Free Solo”’s El Capitan. For Honnold, a long-time climate activist, this expedition is about more than just climbing. It is an opportunity to witness firsthand the impact of climate change on a wilderness that is vitally important to the future of the planet.

With the help of Dr. Heïdi Sevestre, a glaciologist working with the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program, Greenlandic guide Adam Kjeldsen and renowned adventurer Aldo Kane, the team uses a special radar to take real-time depth and density measurements of a rarely studied section of Greenland’s ice cap. “Arctic Ascent With Alex Honnold” is a three-part scientific expedition led by one of the world’s greatest climbers in pursuit of a lifelong dream.

Check out the trailer below:

The three-episode series includes:

  • “71 Degrees North”  – The first stage of Alex’s epic Greenland expedition gets underway.
  • “On Thin Ice” – The team is hit by deadly ice falls before crossing a treacherous icecap.
  • “The Wall” – Alex and the team reach their ultimate goal: a 4000-foot sea wall.

“Arctic Ascent With Alex Honnold” will be released in the United States on the National Geographic Channel on February 4th 2024, from 8/7c and all three episodes will be available the following day on February 5th 2024 on Hulu and Disney+.
