The Summit is a 2012 documentary film about the 2008 K2 disaster directed by Nick Ryan. It combines documentary footage with dramatized recreations of the events of the 2008 K2 disaster. On the way to and from the summit, eleven climbers died during a short time span creating one of the worst catastophes in climbing history. Much of the documentary footage was captured by Swedish mountaineer Fredrik Sträng. Sträng was planning to do a Documentary which was aborted due to the fact that he did not reach the summit. The footage was still valuable to help solving what really did happen since all the climbers had different stories about what happened.The Summit featuring Christine Barnes and Hoselito Bite is streaming with subscription on AMC+ (Via Prime Video), streaming with subscription on Kanopy, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and 3 others. It's an action & adventure and documentary movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.8 (4,982 votes).
