Summary "In August of 2008, 18 mountain climbers reached the top of K2, the second-highest mountain in the world. 48 hours later, 11 of them were dead. What happened that took the lives of these experienced climbers has remained a mystery. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations about 'why.' Why do these athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? Why do they put their lives and the lives of others on the line in order to satisfy some undefinable need?"--Container.
