Video: Cold, the trailer…

Jun. 9th 2011

In February of 2011 SCARPA athlete Cory Richards and veteran Himalayan alpinists Denis Urubko and Simone Moro made the first winter ascent of an 8,000m peak in Pakistan’s Karakoram, summitting Gasherbrum II. Richards recorded dispatches of their progress and the world followed as the team accomplished their goal while braving high-altitude winter conditions. Following the milestone ascent, the team was avalanched on their way down to base camp and successfully dug each other out. Richards captured his team’s incredible feat and now he and filmmaker Anson Fogel are bringing the experience to life with the film, “Cold.”
