The team meets 8,000 feet+ high at Mt. Kibari Basecamp after Karen Scott reports her husband, Alan, missing at 10,000+ feet in the brutal Alaskan mountains. Hardison describes the scene as a danger cupcake with murder icing, and Alan, a seasoned climber, may well have been murdered. There is a race to find Alan-- the team, Karen and various real estate moguls, lawyers, investment bankers and business associates of Alan want to locate him and (more importantly) the business notebook Karen hopes he is carrying. In a cameo as Alan Scott, Eric Stoltz is, as ever, some kind of wonderful! Written by

The mountaineering scenes were filmed in Oregon, near Mount Hood, some 80 km east-southeast of Portland. According to an interview with Timothy Hutton, the snowfall was real, not staged, and the cast managed to get some filming done "...between the major snowball fights". There is no actual Mount Kibari in Alaska (there is, however, a town named Kibari in Rwanda). See more
The tree-line in Alaska is about 7,800 ft. Elliot and Parker are at 8,000 ft at the emergency tent, and the trees there are full sized conifers. See more
