In this five-part series, Fogle climbed the Via Ferrata in the Italian Dolomites, went scuba diving between the tectonic plates beneath a glacier in Iceland, jumped out of a plane for a solo skydive in Western Australia, climbed the 120m high Castleton Rock in Utah, swam from Alcatraz to San Francisco, para-glided in Italy, completed a 24-hour bike race across the Moab desert, and took on The Anaconda, a run, kayak, swim and cycle race through the wilds of Western Australia.
