August 1, 2008 is one of the deadliest days in mountaineering history. That was the day that a group of climbers attempted to summit K2. 11 of them never made it back down the mountain. The story of that fateful day has been shrouded in mystery to a degree ever since, with the handful of survivors all sharing stories of hardship and difficulty. But a new film entitled The Summit is set to be released on October 4 and it promises to tell the tale of what really happened on the Savage Mountain that awful day five years ago. The trailer for the film can be found below. To say that it looks intense would be a major understatement.
