How Drones Helped Skier Navigate K2's First Descent

By

“Drone pilot Bartek Bargiel never thought that his drone would be used to save lives before this expedition. Bartek believes that this has been groundbreaking research in understanding the capability of drones and how they can be used to help other climbers and skiers conquer the world’s deadliest mountains and routes more safely.”

Another fascinating video about Andrzej Bargiel’s groundbreaking July 22, 2018 first descent of K2 as he and battled against nature’s odds and navigated his climb and ski routes with the help of a drone flying in super thin air. Some may call it cheating but they might also condone supplemental oxygen (something Andrzej did not use). Really interesting video on the role an eye in the sky played in ski history.
