Belly of the Beast

Expert climber, Willi Prittie, dog musher Brent Sass and survival expert Austin Manelick joined together and have plotted a more conservative plan than the rest of the pack. They will make their way through the pass and down the river because they want nothing to do with the bear highway. They will need to cover seven more miles than the Seavey brothers.

The explorers have 72 hours to reach their extraction landing zone: a cold 35 miles away. Dallas Seavey and his brother Tyrell are the first group to break off and travel into one of the most bear-populated areas in the world.
