In his latest video (shown below), he is seen traversing one of the most challenging mountains in Britain: The Black Cuillin Ridge.
In order to film his latest project, MacAskill returns to his home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland and takes an awe-inspiring ride through the Cuilin, a range of mountains infamous for its inaccessibility. MacAskill shows an incredible level of skill on his mountain-bike by making seemingly effortless movements through jagged trails and, with his mountain-bike on his back, climbs higher to even more heart-stopping areas of the mountain. This is no easy feat as a fall from these treacherous trails could be fatal. However, MacAskill’s evident determination shows that he cannot be easily deterred from such exploits.
