Geoff checked this out at the library:So much I never knew. And I still don't "get" it. Why flirt with death to do this? Every one is motivated by something different. For some people it is climbing the unclimbable.
Anyway, it is sort of documentary/reality TV format and takes place over several episodes. A few teams of men are making the climb to the top. We are all enjoying it, but there are a few words in there that didn't get bleeped, though between the foreign accents, the wind noise, etc., I think the kids missed them. You get to see what all they go through, and learn a little bit about the effects of altitude, etc.
