Peter has since retired from climbing, becoming a full-time wildlife photographer, and Annie has gone on to become a renowned mountain climber.
Back at the military station, the nitroglycerine canisters come into contact with the sun and explode.
Base camp tells the teams to get their cases of nitroglycerin into the shade.
Wick descends into the cave and harnesses Annie, and although a weakened Vaughn thinks he is about to attack him, Wick attaches a harness to him as well.
Along with Peter, he attempts to pull Annie out of the crevasse, but an ice boulder falls, knocking Wick and Vaughn from the ledge in the crevice and pulling Annie and Peter down.
The teams pair off: Malcolm and Kareem, Monique and Cyril, and Peter and Wick.
Each team takes different entry points up the mountain to increase chances of success.
Monique and Cyril enter trouble when Cyril loses his balance and clings to the side of a cliff.
After Monique secures her harness to him, the peak cracks, and Monique also falls over the edge with the leaky nitro canisters exploding beneath them.
Peter, who initially radioed Tom to turn around, stands by the radio and begins to hear Annie using Morse code to inform base camp that they are alive.
