While we’re on the subject of K2 today, here is an excellent documentary about the mountain that will give you a better idea of the challenges involved with climbing it. It features a team of climbers who went to the Karakoram in 2004 to attempt the “Savage Mountain,” and it includes some impressive footage of the peak.
It is 43 minutes in length, so be sure to watch it when you have plenty of free time. It’ll give you more appreciation for those who attempt this very difficult climb.
