Polish daredevil becomes first to ski down deadly K2 in jaw-dropping run (VIDEO)
K2, which stands on the Pakistan-China border, is also known as the Savage Mountain. It is widely considered among the most dangerous and difficult peaks to climb, and has a long list of fatalities registered on its slopes.
With 300 successful ascents, K2 has a fatal statistics record which includes 77 people who died while attempting to climb the mountain, meaning that a quarter of people pursuing the goal of conquering the dangerous mountain have sacrificed their life.
The 28,251ft giant is placed further north than Everest, constantly attracting bad weather which turns every ascent into a perilous challenge for climbers.
Bargiel not only managed to reach the K2 summit, but he also entered his name into the history books by becoming the first person to descend from the world's second-highest peak after Mount Everest.
I would like to thank all my sponsors and everyone who helped me reach the top of K2.— Andrzej Bargiel (@JedrekBargiel) 25 июля 2018 г.
