Filmed on the Plateau Rosa in December 1953 and on the Monte Rosa in January 1954, this is the cinematographic and mountaineering preparation for the Italian expedition to K2. The expedition finally succeeded in ascending to the summit of K2 via the Abruzzi Spur on 31 July 1954. The expedition was led by Ardito Desio, and the two climbers who reached the summit were Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni.
