Project Uses 360º GoPro Setup to Let You Climb Up a 13,000-Foot Peak in the Alps from Your Couch

Mammut

Outdoor brand Mammut recently teamed up with avid climbers Dani Arnold and Stephan Siegrist to document and create an incredible interactive 360º climb up the side of Eiger: a 13,000-foot tall mountain in the Alps.

The interactive website, aptly titled Mammut Project360, was created using an impressive, custom-built 360º GoPro setup to capture images continuously as the two capable climbers made their way up the mountainside.

Check out the video below to get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of:

Six GoPros, a number of battery packs and a GPS unit were all attached to an arm (for a better viewing angle) and, together, kept the photos going while also recording location, height and more. That data was then combined into the interactive experience you can find at the link above… and it’s awesome.

No written description will do the views justice, so give the three-and-a-half minute video a watch to learn more, and then head over to Mammut Project360 to experience the climb for yourself… minus the freezing temps and any need to use muscles not found in your mouse finger.
