Some people can truly do extraordinary things, especially when it’s so physically taxing on a reality competition series. We’re going to see some of those strong-willed contestants on HBO Max’s new show, The Climb.

Aquaman actor Jason Momoa has a passion for rock climbing. And so, he decided to bring that passion to a competition series, which he is leading behind the scenes. He co-created the production with legendary rock climber Chris Sharma.

Also working offscreen are executive producers Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, Erin Gamble, Matt Shanfield, Brian Mendoza, James Mendoza, and Jonathan Retseck. The co-showrunners take on EP duties as well.
