2014 Summit of K2


An in-depth video account of my 2014 summit of K2 to raise awareness and research funds for Alzheimer's Disease. I, Alan Arnette, became the oldest American at age 58 and the 18th American to summit K2. We summited on my birthday, July 27, 2014. The video starts with our arrival in Islamabad, then the journey via planes, and FJ Cruiser's to the "end of the road" at Askole where the 80-mile trek to K2 Base Camp begins. Hiking over the Baltoro Glacier is an adventure in its own right. Once at Base Camp, we visit the Gilky Memorial to remember those who have died in these mountains. The climb on K2 begins at Advance Base Camp with a steep 1,000-meter (3,000 ft) climb to Camp 1. After acclimatization rotations as high as C2, the summit push begins near the end of July.
