Breathtaking: K2 – The World’s Most Dangerous Mountain | Eddie Bauer
Jun 1, 2020 / 46.16 min
This is a great documentary. Even more incredible, seeing that that Eddie Bauer mountain guides Adrian Ballinger and Carla Perez have done this feat without the use of supplemental oxygen.
We’re just disappointed there was no mention of Nirmal Purja (Nims) and his team being an integral part, as they had reached the summit hours before and helped, at the very least, to clear the path.
(Also, it has always bother us the lack of appreciation/recognition for Nepalese mountaineers whose efforts are too often eclipsed in these documentaries and/or by media coverage of western climbers.)
Does not take away from the breathtaking feat that the Eddie Bauer’s team accomplished but would have been a bit more honest.
