Video: Alan Arnette Takes Us to the Summit of K2

It has been four years since Alan Arnette summited K2 back on July 27, 2014. In doing so, he became the oldest American to accomplish that feat at the age of 58. Recently, Alan complied the video clips that he shot from that expedition and put together a short documentary chronicling his attempt on the world’s second highest peak. For those of us who followed Alan’s expedition as it unfolded, this is a powerful look at what it was like for him on the mountain. It also offers some insight into why he climbs in the first place, while providing a rare look at a peak that remains dangerous and difficult.
