The Summit

In August, 2008, 18 mountain climbers reached the top of K2. 48 hours later, 11 people were dead. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations about 'the why'. Why do these athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? "The Summit" is about the very nature of adventure in the Modern World.
