This event took place on November 19, 2008, as part of the [email protected] series. On July 20, 2007 twenty five climbers set out for the summit of K2. Eighteen would reach the summit.

Leading an international expedition, and filming it for NBC TV, Chris Warner captured the mountain, in all its brutality. Now he is bringing his Emmy nominated footage, and tales of heroism, narcissism and cowardice, to the Google community.
