I did not want to comment on this thread until I watched them both. I'll have to side with survivorman.
Dude in MvW does shit that even people in excellent physical condition can't do. Every f'ing episode he climbs some crazy stuff that normal people won't do. WTF, just cause you're a bad ass skier lost in the mountains - does not mean you can climb up/down a 100' foot cliff.
I also don't agree with EVERYTHING he says.
Survivor man, well a little more realistic for the average joe IMO. Common sense and easier to implement tips/tricks...that's what I look for.
