Overview

Dave Ohlson's mountain climbing documentary K2: Siren of the Himalayas follows the attempts of two world-class explorers to scale the second-highest peak in the world.

This approach shows how this physically grueling task has changed over one-hundred years, and how in some ways it stays the same.
