K2: Impossible Descent

K2, the 'Savage Mountain', holds a mythical place in the hearts of climbers around the world- 1 in 4 do not return from it. On July 22, 2018, Polish ski-mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel makes ‘the impossible descent’ from its summit. He does it solo, and without supplemental oxygen. The mountaineering community are stunned and mainstream press take notice. In this 24-minute cut – exclusive to the Banff tour – join Andrzej across knife-edge ridges, above 1000m cliffs and down 75 degree slopes in a nail-biting solo ski world first.
