“COLD” – Trailer…

“For the past 26 years 16 expeditions have tried and failed to climb one of pakistan’s 8,000 meter peaks in winter.”

This trailer alone gave me the chills.  With all the media frenzy around NFL, NBA, MLB and all the other mainstream sports, extreme athletes like these hardly ever get noticed and they are making historical achievements and nearly killing themselves in the process.  -51 degrees F?  Insane…  I think what these guys do is absolutely incredible.  I can’t even imagine the conditioning and perseverance it takes to climb a 21,000+ foot peak in the summer let alone the winter.

I love the candid line at the beginning, “What the FUCK am I doing here???”
