Adrian Hayes talks to Paul Blezard about his attempts to climb K2 - the notorious second highest mountain in the world - in 2013 and again in 2014. During these expeditions his thoughts often turned to his guilt and struggles as a father amid tumultuous personal circumstances; the profound events on K2 and the powerful lessons for our lives in the world below. His is a deeply moving story of the beauty and brutality of life, and death, on the world's most unpredictable and perilous mountain.
