In leg six, the teams are inserted into the heart of Alaskan gold country. Slashing through a thorny gauntlet of devil’s club, they charge for the insertion flag. Some head for the high ground to escape the dungeon of thorns, while others bushwhack directly through the forest. Fed up with Lower 48's lack of communication, Sweeney goes rogue, leaving Kasha and Cluck behind.moreless
Riding on the historic Alaskan Railroad, the teams are inserted into a remote river valley. To reach extraction, the adventurers must traverse mountains, canyons, glaciers and an iceberg-filled lake.
On leg four, teams travel by land and water, as they charge toward the extraction LZ on an ocean inlet.
On leg three, teams descend 2,000 ft of snowy ridges, bush-covered slopes and spongy swamps to reach the LZ.
Dropped near the top of a towering mountain peak, teams are provided with skis, snowboards and climbing rope. The mission is clear: descend the mountain in any way possible.
In the first leg of the thirteen-leg competition, four teams battle their way to the summit of Mount Gerdine. They'll cross a rapidly thawing lake, traverse a crevasse-filled glacier, and claw up walls of crumbing ice.
