Synopsis

Documentary about the ill-fated mountaineering expedition to the summit of K2 where eleven climbers lost their lives in 2008. Although K2 is behind Mount Everest in terms of height, the peak is still considered the more challenging climb due to the unpredictable and arduous nature of its terrain and its regular extreme storms. Film-maker Nick Ryan interviews the survivors of the 2008 expedition and together with footage recorded on the mountain we are offered an insight into the great difficulties experienced and suggestions as to the reasons behind the eleven lost lives.
