Created and hosted by Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa and professional rock climber Chris Sharma, HBO Max’s ‘The Climb’ is a rock-climbing reality competition series. It follows ten amateur rock climbers from all over the world, including the champion climber Meagan Martin, who must go head-to-head against each other in a series of rock climbing challenges, which put their physical and mental strength to the test.
The climbers must stay on their toes to earn the title of the world’s best amateur climber and take home the grand cash prize of $100,000 and sponsorship with prAna. Moreover, the daunting rocks the contestants attempt to climb against the backdrop of a wide range of landscapes make one wonder where all ‘The Climb’ is shot.
