Breathtaking: K2 - The World's Most Dangerous Mountain

Adrian Ballinger and Carla Perez aim to summit the 8611-meter peak and join a community of explorers fewer in number than those who have been to outer space.

Striving to achieve the feat without relying on supplemental oxygen, the team encounters perilous conditions, formidable setbacks, and relentless challenges at every turn. Nevertheless, as Ballinger affirms, "I'll persevere until the mountain dictates otherwise." This film has garnered 14 million views on YouTube and was an official selection at Mountainfilm 2020. Additionally, it won the Best Film on Climbing award at the New Zealand Mountain Film Festival 2020. Produced, written and edited by the Eddie Bauer team in collaboration with Adrian Ballinger, Carla Perez and Esteban ‘Topo’ Mena.
