What a beast... nothing else like it on the face of the planet.
So many incredible stories - the one that impresses me the most is "The Belay". Pete Schoening - a true hero. "The Belay" - one of the most heroic acts I've ever heard of.
This mountain inspires awe, fear, and joy in me - all at the same time!
That wisp of cloud tailing northeast off the summit - the weather turned BAD up high within a day, didn't it? From what I've read, that's usually the first sign of worsening weather - and K2 certainly has PLENTY of bad weather!
Thanks for taking the time to share this great photo,
