In this new book from photographer andnbsp;mountaineer Alastairnbsp;Lee,nbsp;panoramic photos reveal Baffin Island's astonishing landscapes, and chronicle top British climber Leo Houlding's ambitious expedition to climb the north face of the incredible Mount Asgard.

Deep in the Canadian Arctic, Baffin Island is one of the most spectacularnbsp;places in the world.nbsp;For most of the year the fjords are filled with frozen sea ice, but for a short period in the summer the ice melts and with 24 hours of daylight the area becomes a climber's paradise, with mile high granite walls and amazing scenery.nbsp;From the magic of the Aurora Borealis, 2am sunrises on the massive twin towers to the freezing bivouacs on the 1000m wall itself, this book covers the epic journey to the mountain, and the eventual twelve day ascent of the wall itself. The journey is also told through individual accounts from each member of the eight-man expedition team.
