I would also read K2 triumph and tragedy by Jim Curran. It's about the 1986 season on K2.

Nice post... what a route! I'd second Curran's book... it's a good read.

What are you looking for exactly? This year was my second time there (1st as a climber) and a very good friend of mine was part of the 2004 repeat on the line. I could get most of the needed information, including many pictures.
