Quest For K2

Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
Climbers never think it's going to happen to them - not come back from an expedition up K2. A willingness to enter a dangerous situation, combined with the will to push themselves to the edge of endurance, is key. By 1981, only 15 climbers had reached the summit, and all by using the same route. Now, the Japanese hope a new honor will be theirs. With the help of three Pakistani high altitude porters, these climbers will attempt the unbreached - and perilous - west ridge. Then, watch as some of the world's toughest men and women ascend K2 by exploring new routes, refusing the assistance of oxygen, and even choosing to face K2 alone.
