„Die Schande am K2"

Willi Steindl is 31 years old, a hotelier in Kirchberg and an extreme mountaineer. He conquered Mount Everest, climbed the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc, among others, and was on Mount Vinson in Antarctica.

In summer 2023, after intensive preparation, he will start an expedition on K2 in the Karakoram, the second highest mountain in the world. On the way to the summit, he reaches the infamous Bottleneck at over 8,000 meters on 27 July 2023 at 2 a.m. Suddenly, an avalanche breaks loose and narrowly misses the group, causing the ascent to be aborted.

While Steindl descends to Camp 2, a Pakistani high altitude porter has an accident at Bottleneck and is left to his fate. Several climbers even climb over Mohammad Hassan, who is still alive, and he dies without any attempt to rescue him. Willi Steindl is unaware of any of this during his descent.
