Synopsis >

Trailer for the documentary The Summit. In August 2008, twenty-four climbers from several international expeditions converged on High Camp of K2, the last stop before the summit of the most dangerous mountain on earth. Forty-eight hours later, eleven had been killed or had vanished, making it the worst K2 climbing disaster in history. In a century of assaults on K2, only about 300 people have ever seen the view from the planet s second highest peak. More than a quarter of those who made it didn t live long enough to share the glory, or to tell the tale.
