Located in Bhutan, Gangkhar Puensum (aka “Killer Mountain") is the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. According to local legend, 6000 meters is the abode of the Gods, and trespassing is strictly prohibited as a matter of religious law. But when a research expedition is lost, billionaire Walter Burton hires Ward Donovan, the best climber in the business to lead a rescue mission. Ward initially resists until he learns that Burton had hired his ex-girlfriend, Kate, to lead the missing group. Soon Ward and his team find themselves on a flight to Bhutan. Upon arriving at base camp, they hear Kate and her team's frantic final message for help. It sounds like there was something else up there, something attacking them, but what could it be? With Burton's son, Creighton, along for the climb (Burton stays at camp), Ward and his team begin their ascent. But they quickly realize why Gangkhar Puensum has never been successfully climbed. Some of them won't be coming back alive. Unbeknownst to them, something slithers through the shadows and under the ice, following them, waiting to strike . . .
