Join James “Cas’ Castrission in Nepal on our exclusive Everest Anniversary trek for Under 30s.
On Australia Day, Thursday 26 January 2012, Aussie duo ‘Cas’ and ‘Jonesy’ created history by becoming the ﬁrst and youngest pair to travel the 2,270km journey from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back, totally unsupported.
After 89 days of pushing the very limits of mental and physical pain in one of the planet’s most unpredictable and harshest landscapes, Cas and Jonesy completed their trek just in time for the last ﬂight out of Antarctica for the season. Suﬀering from severe sleep and food deprivation the boys experienced hallucinations, continuous fatigue and painful injuries.
The boys turned their Crossing the Ice adventure into a documentary which recently won 3 awards at the most prestigious outdoor film festival in the world – the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Crossing the Ice took out the Adventure & Exploration category, the People’s Choice and the Grand Prize.
Cas and Jonesy have inspired millions with their contagious energy for adventure. The pair ﬁrst landed in the spotlight after their world-ﬁrst unsupported paddle across the Tasman in 2008. Crossing the Ditch has since become a book and documentary, airing in 58 countries.
Needless to say these young men are now the stuff of legends.
