K2 – SIREN OF THE HIMALAYAS

I’m not an 8000er freak, probably because I’ll never have the money to ever get there, but the Karakorum range fascinates me and I have much respect for the independent climbers that explore that region. On the other hand, I can’t stand certain groups of people that can’t see past the marketing on Everest to realize that real climbing goes way beyond that.

So I came across this trailer and in it, a sentence by a canadian guide, that’s sure a slap in the face of many:

“Everest and K2 aren’t even the same sport”

Thank you Chris Szymiec.
