    Default Discovery Channel tonight: "Disaster on K2"

    Here is their description of the show:

    When enormous ice walls collapse, seven climbers are trapped near the summit of the most dangerous mountain on earth: K2. With footage and interviews with the few who lived to tell the story, we follow this tale of heroism, survival, and hearbreak.

    I was just flipping through the TV guide and saw this so I thought I'd call it to everyone's attention. I don't know if I have a morbid streak or if I hope to learn something, but I usually like these kind of shows.

    I really enjoyed the program. I'll never be climbing anything that high, but it goes to show you why climbers have developed a set of "rules" over the years, and that breaking them can have severe consequences. I mean a guy was standing still and unclipped from the safetly line for a second to adjust something.....and slid 400 feet to his death. Wow.
