This Skier is Just Insane

In a display of stunning courage, skill and persistence, the Polish ski mountaineer Andrzej Bargiel put down the first-ever ski descent of the Karakorum giant known as K2. Just 200m shorter than Mt Everest, and a lot more dangerous, it was one of the few well-known peaks still un-skied from the summit, until this man did it. Now that’s more than a simple ski challenge.
