Leo is a veteran of a score of epic ascents, including Everest, but specialises in free climbing the most technical peaks and biggest walls in the world. An experienced base jumper he is at the forefront of Para-Alpinism (climbing up then flying down). Leo pushes the limits of exploratory adventure by taking the ultimate in extreme sports to the most extreme environments.
He sports an impressive television résumé, including an infamous appearance on the BBC's Top Gear, his own show on Virgin One Take Me To The Edge, and an IMAX movie released in 2010, The Wildest Dream, retracing the last steps of Mallory and Irvine on their fateful expedition to Everest in 1924.
Most recently he has teamed up with natural historian and adventurer Monty Halls to film the TV series Lost Worlds for the Discovery Channel. Together they make the perfect team to explore the exotic and dangerous locations and truly get to grips with the ecology and wildlife that surrounds them.
Leo has become an ambassador for the younger generation of climbers and has been called one of Britain's top ten adventurers by The Telegraph.
