Next Bear ad­ven­ture courts heights of dan­ger

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

se­ries Mis­sion Ever­est fol­lows ad­ven­turer Bear Grylls and his friend Gilo Car­dozo as they pre­pare to fly over the sum­mit of Mount Ever­est strapped on to flimsy paraglide chutes pow­ered by back­pack paramo­tors. Car­dozo must sin­gle-hand­edly de­sign and build a paramo­tor that can han­dle the heights. Grylls (pic­tured) han­dles their sur­vival strat­egy. The pair face tem­per­a­tures of -40C that will freeze ex­posed flesh, hur­ri­cane-force winds that can dash them against the peaks and oxy­gen lev­els low enough to cause black­outs and al­most cer­tain death.
