Description

Climbers arrive at Everest Base Camp and quickly learn the dangers of the mountain when they hear about a Sherpa's condition. Climbers struggle to push their bodies to acclimate to the extreme altitude four miles above sea level; the climbers are shocked to discover how badly their minds and bodies cope as they move to Advance Base Camp to start their acclimatization climbs. A cameraman collapses with intense stomach pains and is rushed down the mountain. Back on the North Col, a member of an Indian expedition collapses unconscious with acute mountain sickness. It is up to expedition physician, Terry, to lead a full-scale rescue mission.

Everest . . . on the edge of your seat at the Top of the World

If you want to get the feeling of what it's like to summit on the highest mountain in the world, then this series is for you. The series follows a team of climbers led by Russell Brice as they make the tortuous trek up the mountain. It's very engaging to watch how all of the logistics, weather, timing and climbers must come together to make a successful climb to the top of the world. The series does a great job of building a relationship with each climber on this team. There's a former Hell's Angel, a danish teacher who's asthmatic, a firefighter from L.A., and a climber with artificial legs -- and you'll start to get inside each of their heads as they face the toughest climbing challenge on Earth. The photography is outstanding, the narration is riveting, and the story-telling is not sugar coated. The tough stuff is there for you to see and experience. As you watch each episode, you'll find it hard to breakaway to take a call, answer the door, take a bio break, or get a snack from the kitchen. If you're looking for adventure, you won't be disappointed.

Incredible...

Many shows in the "adventure and travel" genre overplay the drama and danger to keep viewers hooked--not this one. Historically about 1 in 10 Everest climbers have died in the attempt (even more lose parts of their bodies to frostbite) and the 2006 climbing season was a particularly deadly one. This show doesn't sugar-coat any of that, so it probably isn't appropriate for small children, but viewers will come away with major respect for the men and women who do this (even those that don't make it all the way to the top.)

One of the best shows ever.

Unbelievable that Discovery managed to get some of the video footage that you see in these episodes. I'm hoping for a season in HD, but I know the equipment probably is too heavy...
