WATCH: Final Edit of Epic K2 First Descent (28,251ft Elevation)

“I feel huge happiness and, to be honest, it was my second attempt, so I’m glad that I won’t be coming here again.”

Andrzej Bargiel trickled out footage as his team raced to put together a proper edit of his historic first descent of K2. The Polish ski mountaineer just posted this incredible video on his Facebook page and my jaw is on the ground. Seriously hope the put together a feature length documentary about this truly epic mission.  Unreal: 

“I’m very happy that I’ve managed to ski down the summit of K2 and get back to the base safely! I started to climb K2 at 4 in the morning on Sunday. The weather was good. Some problems appeared when I reached the peak and started to ski down. It was very cloudy and I had to wait for it to clear up at Base IV because the next phase of my downhill was going to be very difficult and technical on an extremely steep wall. I feel huge happiness and, to be honest, it was my second attempt, so I’m glad that I won’t be coming here again.”
