Video: Climbing Abruzzi Spur Route on K2

Climbing Abruzzi

If you’ve ever wondered what it is like to climb K2, the second tallest mountain in the world, this video will certainly be eye-opening. It takes us to that mountain and up the famed Abruzzi Spur route, one of the toughest and most technically challenging ascents in the world. The video was shot this past summer in the Karakoram and gives viewers a glimpse of the conditions and challenges that come along with taking on “the Savage Mountain.” It is both beautiful and intimidating at the same time.
