2
00:00:31,212 --> 00:00:36,926
Human beings venture into the highest
parts of our planet at their peril.

3
00:00:37,510 --> 00:00:40,471
Some might think that
by climbing a great mountain ...

4
00:00:40,555 --> 00:00:42,390
they have somehow conquered it,

5
00:00:42,807 --> 00:00:46,018
but we can only be visitors here.

6
00:00:48,479 --> 00:00:52,733
This is a frozen alien world.

7
00:01:04,370 --> 00:01:06,873
This is the other extreme

8
00:01:06,956 --> 00:01:11,085
one of the lowest hottest places on Earth.

9
00:01:17,758 --> 00:01:21,679
It's over a 100 meters
below the level of the sea.

10
00:01:21,804 --> 00:01:25,141
But here a mountain is in gestation.

11
00:01:25,266 --> 00:01:28,269
Pools of sulphuric acid
are indications ...

12
00:01:28,352 --> 00:01:33,191
that deep underground
there are titanic stirrings.

13
00:01:38,779 --> 00:01:42,283
This is the Danakil Depression
in Ethiopia,

14
00:01:42,408 --> 00:01:45,411
lying within a colossal rent
in the earth's surface ...

15
00:01:45,494 --> 00:01:49,540
where giant land masses
are pulling away from one another.

16
00:01:52,126 --> 00:01:56,172
Lava rises to the surface through
this crack in the crust ...

17
00:01:56,255 --> 00:01:59,217
creating a chain of young volcanoes.

18
00:02:11,229 --> 00:02:13,397
This one, Erta Ale,

19
00:02:13,481 --> 00:02:18,528
is today the longest continually
erupting volcano on the planet,

20
00:02:18,611 --> 00:02:23,449
a lake of lava that has been
molten for over a 100 years.

21
00:02:34,752 --> 00:02:41,884
These same volcanic forces
also created Ethiopia's highlands.

22
00:02:47,932 --> 00:02:49,934
70 million years ago ...

23
00:02:50,017 --> 00:02:52,979
this land was just as flat
and as deep ...

24
00:02:53,062 --> 00:02:55,064
as the Danakil Depression.

25
00:02:57,358 --> 00:03:00,653
Molten lava rising
from the earth's core ...

26
00:03:00,736 --> 00:03:05,241
forced up a huge dome
of rock 500 miles wide,

27
00:03:05,277 --> 00:03:07,368
the roof of Africa.

28
00:03:14,041 --> 00:03:17,503
Over millennia,
rain and ice carved the rock ...

29
00:03:17,587 --> 00:03:20,882
into a landscape
of spires and canyons.

30
00:03:27,722 --> 00:03:30,266
These summits, nearly 3 miles up,

31
00:03:30,349 --> 00:03:34,645
are home to some very
remarkable mountaineers

32
00:03:34,979 --> 00:03:37,356
Gelada baboons.

33
00:03:37,440 --> 00:03:41,444
They are unique
to the highlands of Ethiopia.

34
00:03:55,499 --> 00:03:59,587
The cliffs where they sleep
are for expert climbers only,

35
00:03:59,670 --> 00:04:02,506
and Gelado certainly have
the right equipment.

36
00:04:02,590 --> 00:04:04,842
The strongest fingers
of any primate ...

37
00:04:04,926 --> 00:04:07,762
and an utterly fearless disposition.

38
00:04:10,681 --> 00:04:14,894
But you need more than a head
for heights to survive up here.

39
00:04:15,019 --> 00:04:20,733
A day in a Gelado's life reveals
how they've risen to the challenge.

40
00:04:34,038 --> 00:04:37,583
For all monkeys,
morning is grooming time,

41
00:04:37,708 --> 00:04:40,711
a chance to catch up with friends.

42
00:04:41,295 --> 00:04:43,297
But, unlike other monkeys,

43
00:04:43,422 --> 00:04:46,8
