In 1991 the film K2 (The Ultimate High) premiered in theaters.

Here is the Synopsis from wikipedia:

K2 is a 1991 motion picture loosely based on the story of two friends’ ascent of the second-highest mountain on Earth, K2. The story is based on a play written by Patrick Meyers and presented as a senior thesis at Stanford University. The film was directed by Franc Roddam, and written by Meyers and Scott Roberts, adapting Meyers’ original stage play. The two main characters of the film, Taylor Brooks (played by Michael Biehn) and Harold Jameson (played by Matt Craven), are loosely based on Jim Wickwire and Louis Reichardt, respectively, the first two Americans to summit K2 in 1978. Wickwire and Reichardt are acknowledged in the ending credits.[1]
