don't start it unless you have time to watch all the way through, it's gripping

K2 wasn't terrible, but on my mountaineering movie scale of 1 to 10, where Touching the void and Nordwand are both score 10, Vertical Limit is off the bottom of the scale and Cliffhanger is a 2, K2 would be a 5, maybe a 4.

This is perhaps the most embarrasingly awful movie about climbing ever made. I particularly enjoyed the sequence of the single yak carrying everyone's equipment up to base camp. It was loaded, if I remember, with 2 boxes. Now that's what I call light and fast. The rest was similar low-budget stuff since most of the money was spent in bringing Shatner in for his cameo in the pub in Kathmandu and anything left over went on paying his bar bill there.

I guess it contributed to my interest in travelling to "mystical" mountain ranges far off the tourist track and also interacting on equal terms with the locals. Haven't seen it since I was 8-9 years old.

I think I was probably even younger than you the last time I saw that movie. Even though I barely remember any details, I vividly remember the impact it made on me. Probably more so than just about any other movie I've seen in my life.
Edit: Just saw you can buy it on DVD now... might have to buy a copy just for the scenery.
