K2 Show at the Brew Pub

Canadian climber, Don Bowie, will be presenting a multimedia show on his successful climbing expedition to K2.  At 28,253ft above sea level, K2 is located in Northern Pakistan and is the world’s second highest peak. It is widely considered to be the hardest and most dangerous mountain on earth to climb.  On July 4th, 2007, Don became the 4th Canadian to summit K2, and did so without the use of supplemental oxygen.

Come see fantastic images, watch video clips, and hear stories of the dramatic ascent and tragic descent on what climbers call, “The Savage Mountain.”

Don Bowie loves remoteness and adventure, and thrives on long approaches and unclimbed routes in the higher ranges. This past summer marked his eighth Himalayan/Karakoram expedition, with a new route attempt on the north face of Gasherbrum III with Bruce Normand. In 2007, he and Normand summited K2 without supplementary oxygen, making Bowie the 4th Canadian to do so. In 2008, he endured 75 grueling days on a Broad Peak winter expedition before resigning to high winds and extreme cold. Earlier this year, Don received the Alpine Club’s Spirit of Mountaineering Commendation at the Piolets d’Or Awards ceremony for his part in the 2008 rescue attempt of Inaki Ochoa on Annapurna. This month, Don was a part of the jury at the world-renowned Banff Mountain Film Festival.
