  1. I remember reading about this in Time magazine or Newsweek at an airport after it happened and I really identified with Ger. I think of him every now and then.

  2. 1 in 4 people pass away trying to summit K2. The mortality rate of attempting to summit K2 is insane! I’ve also heard that when you’re very close to a summit, you can get excited delirium and keep pushing even if it’s not the best decision.

  3. It's kind of crazy because the most of these videos of Everest and K2 that pop up in my reels and on facebook, the more I just don't understand the thrill to do it. All of that time spent, possibly dying, just to stand on top for a couple of minutes, then descend back down without dying. The successful summit videos have been a joy to watch because it is an incredible feat, but I still can't fathom the energy and time spent just to stand on top of a mountain haha.

  4. 22:30 All sherpas are professional climbers you muppet. Your the dam amateur compared to them. His statement was about as arrogant as a black guy in a Chinese spa.

  5. It surprises me that they haven't all made a decision before ascending whether they attempt to a rescue or keep going. Actually it doesn't appear to me that there was much of a consensus about anything of importance.

  6. There are known climbers whose lifeless bodies locations are known; but the conditions are so bad no helicopter or rescue team can go; so it is their final resting place frozen in the open.

  7. This is insane! It's like the family of Ger is trying to point the finger of blame at somebody. Are they actually surprised that he died? Because I'm not. Ten other people died as well. Breathtaking shots of K2 and an interesting story. The final scenes with Ger's family launching an investigation about his death should have been edited out. Interrogating these guys who almost died themselves is low brow. All of them were exhausted, dehydrated, disoriented, and scared. Of course their stories are going to be different and change over time. Just like mine and yours would. We are humans.

  8. I feel for Ger's family but damn. That's a do or die situation and no one is responsible but for themselves on that crazy journey.
