Outdoor Movie: K2: The Impossible Descent

August 7 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel was an athlete keeping a low profile when he summited K2 without oxygen and skied from peak to base without removing his skis in 2018– a seemingly impossible challenge which had never been completed before or since. The ascent of K2 alone is an extraordinary achievement with one in four people who attempt it never returns. This new feature-length documentary reveals what happened behind the scenes of this world-first mission. Told from Bargiel and his team’s perspective, the film features added comments from experts including Free Solo film co-director and ski mountaineer Jimmy Chin.
