On the 30th April 2017 world famous climber Ueli Steck died on Mt. Nuptse whilst acclimatising for one of his biggest climbs yet – climbing both Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse without the use of bottled oxygen.

This three part Oculus series starts off in the heart of the French Alps and follows some of the world’s best mountain athletes pursuing their sports and explaining their motivations behind it. Your journey will take you to the most extreme VR locations filmed on this planet and finish on the summit of Everest itself. Join them for one of the most immersive adventure experiences ever captured. Witness what it’s like to be engulfed in a Himalayan avalanche, cross a crevasse and stare deep in its depths, take a huge rock climbing fall, camp under the stars, and soak in the view from the Top of the World.
