Xavier de la Rue's two-year project, Degrees North, drops next week. We've been basically sharing every single trailer, interview, and behind-the-scenes footage that comes our way because this movie will be a game-changer.
The French big mountain legend, in his usual fashion, traveled to the far reaches of the globe to ride the most challenging lines of his career. He and fellow The North Face rider Ralph Backstrom used paramotors to access them, the first-time ever on film.
Life Beyond Walls, Smith Optics' semi-regular web series, takes us to Alaska for a rather visually stunning look at what life was like for Xavier and Ralph during the expedition.
