Leo Houlding Hyperspace Tents

Terra Nova tents made a film appearance in 2013. UK climber, Leo Houlding, chose Terra Nova 3-man Hyperspace tents to use on his epic film adventure, in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica.

The expedition team left the UK in December 2012 to make an attempt on a new route on the northeast ridge of Ulvetanna. Ulvetanna (“the wolf’s tooth” in Norwegian) is located in the Orvin Fjell mountains of Queen Maud Land, eastern Antarctica. At 2,930m, it is the most technically demanding peak on the harshest continent.

The film of the expedition was the third part of a trilogy shot by leading filmmaker Alistair Lee. The first of which was the multi-award winning ‘The Asgard Project’, followed by the ‘Autana Jungle Mission’ film which premièred in 2012. The Asgard Project won 26 awards on the international mountain film festival circuit and has been seen by millions of outdoor enthusiasts around the world.

“The Hyperspace tents were outstanding especially when double poled – an under valued trick that turns them from tents into hurricane shelters. We experienced winds up to 45mph that really rattled the other tents but barely effected our double-polers. We were narrowly spared a beating from forecast 100mph winds, had we been hit we would’ve been relying on them for survival.” – Leo Holding, April 2013.

British Made Terra Nova Hyperspace tents are used by countless expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica as they are a perfect base camp tent and built for this type of expedition.

A huge congratulations to the team who have successfully reached the summit from all at Terra Nova Equipment!
