While climbing in Monument Valley, siblings Peter (O’Donnell) and Annie Garrett (Tunney) lose their father, Royce (Stuart Wilson): After two falling climbers leave the family dangling, Royce forces Peter to cut him loose to save Peter and his sister.
Four years later, Peter has retired from climbing, but Annie has become a renowned climber. Their relationship is strained, as Annie still blames Peter for the death of their father.
Peter reunites with Annie at the K2 base camp, where Annie is planning a summit attempt on K2. The expedition is funded by wealthy industrialist Elliot Vaughn (Paxton). Their team includes Annie, Vaughn, renowned climber Tom McLaren (Nicholas Lea), mountaineer Ali Nazir, and one other.
The night before the climb, Vaughn throws a party. The gala is interrupted by reclusive Montgomery Wick (Glenn), reportedly the foremost K2 expert, who verbally challenges Vaughn. It’s later revealed that Wick’s wife, an expedition guide, died during Vaughn’s previous expedition. Vaughn claims they were hit by a storm and Wick’s wife died of pulmonary edema because she forgot her supply of dexamethasone. Wick has never believed that story and has spent years trying to find his wife’s body.
During the present climb, Vaughn forces McLaren to continue despite a radio warning from base camp of an approaching storm. An avalanche occurs, and Annie, Vaughn, and McLaren become trapped in a crevasse, while the other two are killed. Radio contact is lost, but Peter hears Annie using static and Morse code to signal that they are alive.
