THE CROSSING

Two young Aussie guys, Clark Carter and Chris Bray, decide to cross a remote island in the Arctic - just for the hell of it. To say they're game is an understatement, and once you see the knee-deep mud and razor-sharp rocks, you'll quickly realise why no one has attempted this before. With teeth gritted and their homemade kayaks fully loaded, the duo head off into the frozen wilderness.
