They documented the journey along the way and the resulting film is now premiering around the world.

The feature length film Crossing the Outback is available online in North America and can be streamed between noon on Oct. 14 and noon on Oct. 21. The film is presented by the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF) and award winning expedition documentary director, Justin Jones.
