K2: Taming The Savage Mountain
Jake Meyer is talking at the Royal Geographical Society about his recent venture to the world's second highest mountain...
"K2, the second highest mountain in the world, has a fearsome and infamous reputation amongst climbers. After climbing Everest when he was 21, Jake set his sights on a mountain which represented much more than simply being 'the highest'. Over a decade of his life, Jake mounted three expeditions to 'The Savage Mountain' - and finally reached the summit on the 21st July 2018, fulfilling a long held ambition. Jake's inspirational story is one of perseverance, tenacity and bouncing back from failure time and time again, despite the time, effort, cost and sacrifices made along the way."
