K2: Andrzej Bargiel historic first ski descent video
The video of the historic first ski descent of K2, carried out by Poland’s Andrzej Bargiel on 22 July 2018.
The first ski descent of K2 carried out by Polish mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel understandably caused quite a stir and news of the 30-year-old’s run down the second highest mountain in the world made the headlines across the globe. Now a video has been released that is a must-see. Although there’s not much footage from the summit, it’s clear that the commitment is total. The images are outstanding, filmed with Piotr Pawlus and also with a drone piloted by Andrzej's brother Bartek. Watching the footage you really get the impression of being up there, descending laboriously towards base camp, alone with in Andrzej, up in K2’s thin air.
