Just a quick reminder that this Sunday, at 2 PM Eastern Time, NBC will be broadcasting a special on the Shared Summits K2 climb. The two hour show is part of the Jeep World of Adventure Sports, which has done a great job over the past few years of spotlighting all kinds of extreme adventures and athletes.
The NBC K2 Expedition Page is up and running with some excellent teaser videos and team bios of the climbers. The site should do a good job of whetting your appetite over the next two days until the actual show airs on Sunday.
It’s great to see some mainstream coverage of a climb like this, especially since it’s not on Everest. I’m sure there will be plenty of viewers who catch the show who have never heard of K2 or realize that just because it’s shorter than Everest (a mere 237 meters shorter) that doesn’t mean it’s easier to climb. I’m looking forward to the show and can’t wait to see how they cover the climb.
