Sierra Nevada

Bear travels to America's greatest mountain range — the Sierra Nevada — a place where hundreds of people become stranded every year. The Sierras are 400 miles long and boast peaks over 14 thousand feet high. Every year 4 million hikers and climbers are drawn to the area's awesome natural beauty. But this stunning wilderness is deceptively dangerous. Become lost out here and you could quickly be struggling just to stay alive. Carrying just a water bottle and cup Bear Grylls shows us how to survive in the Sierra's three major mountainous regions.
