Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this intense documentary series includes some potentially upsetting shots of hands and feet blackened by frostbite and climbers suffering the effects of altitude sickness. In one scene, a man vomits and has difficulty breathing because of life-threatening cerebral edema (swelling of the brain). Much of the commentary by both the narrator and the climbers centers on the health risks the climbers face (like a body eating its own flesh to survive an oxygen shortage) and the real possibility that they could die on the mountain. But on the upside, the show celebrates overcoming adversity to meet goals, which is best personified by double amputee Mark Inglis' attempts to make history by reaching the summit.
