A climber must rescue his sister on top of K2, one of the world's biggest mountains.
While the actual twenty-eight thousand foot K2 is in the Karakoram Range in Pakistan, Mt. Cook in New Zealand served as the backdrop for all scenes involving the famous peak.
Don't mind her. She's French-Canadian. Some days she's Canadian. Can be quite pleasant. Today she's obviously French.
When Bill Paxman says Ed Viesturs is the only man to have climbed 12 of the world's 14 highest peaks, all without supplemental oxygen, he is wrong. At the time of filming three people had climbed all the 14 highest without any supplemental oxygen, starting with Reinhold Messner in 1986. Ed Viesturs was the 5th person to accomplish this feat, in 2005.
