The North Face, known for helping explorers reach the furthest limits in the outdoors for more than 50 years, launched their Fall 2018 Summit Series™ line featuring key additions and updates to its pinnacle mountaineering collection, along with a trailer of the much-anticipated climbing film, Antarctica.
Comprised of high-altitude expedition, alpinism, big-wall climbing and ski mountaineering apparel and gear, the Summit Series™ will unveil a handful of thoughtful and athlete-requested additions including two significant updates to the Summit L6 Belay Parka, the addition of a full side zip on the Summit L5 GTX Pro Full Zip Bib, thoughtful innovations around the dynamic-venting Summit L3 Ventrix™ mid layers, and the brand new addition of a Summit L3 Proprius Knicker and Summit G5 Proprius Glove for fast and light ski-mountaineering outings.

In addition, this collection is largely featured in the highly anticipated climbing film, Antarctica, set to release in early November.
The film documents six of The North Face’s athletes – Jimmy Chin, Alex Honnold, Savannah Cummings, Anna Pfaff, Conrad Anker and Cedar Wright – as they journey to Queen Maud Land, Antarctica to conquer and send demanding routes on each of the six peaks of the “Wolf’s Jaw.” The trailer teases the stunning views, apocalyptic landscape and physical challenges of climbing some of the most remote peaks in the world.
