I am Cris Coban, the host of an upcoming television series about mountaineering. We are very excited about getting everything in place for a successful run. The first set of 13 episodes (starting mid 2008) will feature North American climbs. We are looking for a few people for the show:

  1. A High Altitude Sports Medicine expert (medical / physiology / high altitude research, M.D., Ph.D. type). Will not climb with us, but will answer our medical/physiology questions.
  2. A recognized Climbing / Mountaineering expert. Will not climb with us, but will answer our technical mountaineering questions.
  3. Mountaineering guides. Will guide us (host + 2-3 crew) on the climb. We’ll have a new guide for each climb. (BTW, the host & crew are experienced mountaineers, with good technical skills for the climbs.)

We would also like to hear any suggestions for outstanding climbs. We are planning climbs in a “crescendo” of technical skills and difficulty, with the last 2-3 episodes of the set dedicated to a Denali expedition.

If you know anyone who would make a good expert or guide for our show (or you have climbing suggestions) please let us know. We’ll be happy to contact them if you provide contact info.

If you would like to forward the above information to your friends or publicize in a newsletter (or newsgroup), that would be great, too. My contact info is: or 407-292-1151 (OK to publicize contact info).

To get acquainted on the phone and discuss any of this, just give me a ring at the above number.

Thanks for your time and suggestions. All the best wishes,

Cris Coban
Mountaineer and Host
