Storyline

Taylor and Harold are good friends and avid climbers. While climbing one day, they meet a man who it seems might be attempting to climb K2, the world's second-highest peak. Always pushy, Taylor bugs the man for a spot on the team, claiming that he and Harold are good enough. They may be very good, but K2 is a very tough mountain.

An excalibur beyond measures
12 April 2020 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

Adrenaline junkies best friends experience climbing dangerously together a bit into the film, meet some people and get offered to go up K2 which they've wanted to do for a very long time. Phenomenal movie with incredible cinematography, soundtrack and acting! Micheal Beighn and Matt Craven are awesome together along with the supporting cast. Underrated wild one that isn't talked about enough!
