Abstract:

Climbers from all over the world take on the challenge of K2, the second highest mountain in the world after Everest. Explore K2 with the famous team from Italy who were the first to scale the mountain in 1954. Then, hear the account of a four-person team of men who climbed the treacherous north spur of K2 in 1990. Hundreds are drawn to the challenge, but for every three climbers who reach the top, one will die. Soaring above 26,000 feet, a lack of oxygen challenges strength and endurance - one misstep can mean certain death. For these thrill-seekers, only passion, grit, and an unwavering will allows victory.
