During a stellar week in early February, Jöttnar Pro Team members Tim Howell and Mike Pescod roped up together. They cut a swathe through the Scottish Highlands, climbing and jumping, each introducing the other to their respective disciplines.
Mike is an IFMGA mountain guide and accomplished winter climber. Staying attached to the mountain governs most decisions he makes. Tim on the other hand, as a BASE jumper, sees things differently. But the skill-sharing between both opened up a new world of possibilities as they moved out of their respective comfort zones. By the end of the week, the pair had climbed some plumb winter lines with Tim opening up a series of never-before-jumped exits on The Cobbler, Ben Nevis, Glen Nevis and the Isle of Skye.
When the BBC broke news of the jumps last month, it was picked up and carried around the world. Watch the film, shot and produced by Brodie Hood, and then scroll below for a look behind the scenes.
Mike Pescod is an IFMGA guide and a member of the Jöttnar Pro Team. He is the founder of Abacus Mountain Guides, an outdoor guiding company based in Fort William, as well as being the author of the guidebook Winter Climbs Ben Nevis and Glen Coe.
