The only problem I see is he takes chances based on his experience that the average bloke shoulnt even think about.
like he is alone "not actually" but he climbs down a cliff face to get somewhere faster.
In realworld someone needs to measure thier knowledge, evaluate a safer route, then act accordingly.

prsonally, i like shows like "mountain men" and such, i also watch "Duel Survivors" as well.
it doesnt matter how fake it is really, as long as they show a propper way of doing it, IMHO.

Bear is a legend in the UK. :D
Read his book a few months ago.
Worth a look at if you get hold of a copy.

i think theres crazy to surviva and the over crazy you need to know were the line is and when not to cross it you'd have to ask you self in extreme circumstances could you eat bug to live or would you wuss out and starve

Well my take on it is, I think you need to know limits. Get outdoors as much as possible, do some bouldering, work with ropes and use your gear. Knots are super important, but there are only a few needed for climbing and repelling. In a bug out situation I think some climbing and rope handling are paramount. I can send you guys some stuff on knots if you like.

I for one have never been a fan of his since he really isn't alone. he is followed by a camera crew, and i am sure a medic/emt isn't far behind.
Plus he does things that he is professionally trained to do. I wouldn't dare try half of what he does.
