For the past 26 years 16 expeditions have tried and failed to climb one of pakistan's 8,000 meter peaks in winter. On february 2, 2011, Simone Moro, Denis Urubko and Cory Richards became the first. Cory is now the only American to summit any 8,000 meter peak in winter. The journey nearly killed them. Cory carried a small camera and filmed the ordeal constantly. This is their story, as seen from the raw, honest perspective of Cory's lens.

If you're a regular of this blog you probably heard of and love Alone in the Wilderness, an extraordinary documentary about Dick Proenneke. Lucky for us fans, Bob Swerer Productions just released a sequel aptly named Alone in the Wilderness part II.  Best $21.95 I spent in a long time.

Dick Proenneke continues documenting his life in the remote Alaska wilderness in this sequel to the original Alone in the Wilderness video. Watch as he builds his cache, enjoys the scenery and visits with his brother Ray.
