Is climbing the Swiss Alps on your bucket list? Maybe a bucket item that you know you might never do? Now, thanks to some skilled professional mountaineers and Go Pro, you can experience the whole view from your couch. Go ahead and check that item off your bucket list.
Dani Arnold, Stephan Siegrist and 12 Go Pro cameras scaled the Eiger North Face of the Swiss Alps, and recorded the whole trek. The climbers created a custom rig designed to hold six Go Pro cameras so each climber could have a full 360 view. The rig was similar to a cube shape, with the cameras facing out. They were then attached to their packs before they started their ascent. The result: a beautiful 360 view of the entire climb.
Upon their arrival back, Mammut – a climbing gear company, took their captured footage and stitched it together to create the breathtaking panoramic images. Mammut also created a interactive site, Mammut Project 360, which allows you to explore alongside the climbers on a virtual climb. And to put a cherry on the top, they created a stellar video of it too.
