Whoa Nellie!

That is without exception the scariest looking chunk of rock and ice I have ever seen.

Re: Whoa Nellie!

It does look pretty scary from this distance (photo was taken with a telephoto lens). You really get an idea of how steep its sides are. Actually, as you get closer to it this effect diminishes a bit.

Wich is the peak (altitude)...

to the left of K2?

Re: Wich is the peak (altitude)...

The peak to the left of K2 is Angel Peak, 6858m. There is a much clearer view of this peak on another of my K2 pictures on SP, the one taken from Broad Peak base camp.

That's a beautiful one!

Great shot. Taken from the place known as Concordia?

Re: That's a beautiful one!

Actually looking right over Concordia, which is just an area on the Baltoro Glacier where it's possible to look up the Godwin Austen Glacier towards K2 as well as up and down the Baltoro.

wow,this one is perfect!!!
But I was wandering that why its only called as K2,the living people around the Karakoram call it as Chogir,and this is its original name.

Re: cool

It was dubbed K2 by the British geo survey in the early 1900's. K being Karakourum (the mt.range), and 2 being the second peak surveyed. Similarly, Everest was once known as Peak XV, rather than Chomolungma, the native moniker.

I think this is one of the more impresive looking mountains out there along with alpamayo and denali. I wonder whats the difference in altitude between the plateau where it starts and the summit. Pretty sure Everest is like 11k and Denali is first at 17k.. 10/10 no doubt!!
