Jeff Evans is the chief high altitude medic and team lead for the highest helicopter based search and rescue team in the world on Mt. Everest. But you don’t get that job by not having plenty of Everest climbing experience yourself.
Evans has over 25 years of guiding expeditions through various trying terrains, and he has guided the first, and only, blind climber to have summited Mt. Everest. Needless to say, Evans has plenty of experience leading people on Everest.
This past May he and his medical rescue team and Sherpas posted up at Basecamp, spending countless days making some of the most harrowing rescues a team can make. It will all be documented in a new show on the Travel Channel called “Everest Air”, which premieres Wednesday, October 26 at 10 p.m. EST.
The show will consist of 6 episodes and will give a first-hand look at what it takes to be part of one of the best rescue teams in the world.
