When you take on “the biggest, baddest mountain in the world,” you want to know who’s watching your back. This year I’m filming and climbing once more for the Discovery Channel, shooting the two biggest teams on the mountain. Himex, led by New Zealander Russell Brice, and International Mountain Guides, or IMG, led by the U.S. climber Eric Simonson. I’ve known Russell for three years now, and I’d climb with his team any day. But this year I’m planning to summit filming IMG’s climbers, with Eric watching out for me. [More at Discovery]
