    Wondery Presents: Against The Odds - The K2 Disaster

    Wondery Presents: Against The Odds - The K2 Disaster

    In the summer of 2008, some of the world’s best climbers made their way towards the summit of K2, the second highest mountain on earth. Sunny mornings suddenly transform into hurricane force winds. Avalanches drop from overhead without warning, unexpected blizzards leave climbers disoriented and lost in weather that can drop to 60 below. But that didn’t stop a group of climbers from attempting the feat. The next season of Wondery's Against the Odds tells their story.

    Through a series of events no one could have foreseen, it will become one of the worst climbing disasters in modern times. It will also lead to extraordinary acts of bravery and an epic triumph of human survival.
