Response to What Really Happened On K2’s Deadliest Day?:
I don’t believe that mountain climbers are heroes or villains. Yes, they take what many would consider to be unnecessary risks but so do sailors, race car drivers, hikers, off road mountain bikers, motorcycle riders, surfers, deep sea divers the list goes on and on. As humans we are endowed with the desire to experience new things, gain new information and achieve personal bests often this entails considerable risk. Likewise film makers seek to make films about things that people find interesting, and someone like myself who will likely never climb a mountain higher than Pike’s peek will certainly be inclined to watch those films.
