Others might have seen this already, but...great film! Note: around the 35min mark is The Belay by Pete Schoening.

Yes, it is quite a good movie. I only wish the transcription from film to video didn't have such noticeable artifacts. But the content was very good. Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks for sharing this, GW.   up.gif I've seen a lot of K2 docs and this is one of the better ones; can't exactly put my finger on why.

I agree. I think it might have something to do with the interviews of the climbers. Even though I'd read about Pete Schoening single-handedly saving the lives of 6 climbers (for the moment) in one of the most incredible feats in mountaineering history, The Belay, to hear it described so clearly by the participants was amazing. (I couldn't tell whether the footage was real or a re-enactment. Probably the latter.)
