Red Bull Launches Locked In with Stookesberry and Korbulic
Posted on March 28, 2016

Ben Stookesbery and Chris Korbulic represent the essence of adventure. Their most recent first descent of the Beriman Gorge in Papua New Guinea is an order of magnitude greater than any objective they had ever tackled. The 13-day, 13-gorge first descent that could only be partially scouted by air placed them in harm’s way in the middle of one of the world’s most remote jungles.

The trip earned them a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year award and now the footage has been condensed into Locked In, an episode on Red Bull TV that premieres tonight. We’ve posted the teaser above and included a selection of previously unreleased images of their mission. You can read more about their mission in our first recap of the Beriman at blog.eddiebauer.com or just wait for the full episode tonight. We’re still a bit in awe. —LYA Editor
