K2 and the Invisible Footmen

K2 and the Invisible Footmen Movie Poster

Located on the border between Pakistan and China, K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth. For many climbers, it is an even greater prize than Everest, with limited routes, a steeper ascent, and a harder push to its summit.

Nicknamed the 'Savage Mountain,' K2's peak juts unprotected into the atmosphere, regularly exposing climbers and porters to life-threatening weather conditions.Despite being paid at rates far below those received by international expedition leaders, such porters?whether they provide critical supplies to expedition base camps or take on higher-altitude tasks in support of ascending climbers?do some of the most difficult and dangerous work and these efforts make them worthy of recognition as the true heroes of mountaineering.
