Re: What a shame

Thank you for your vote and comments. Yes, climbing of K-2 is undoubtedly is highest. K-2, only 773 feet lower than Everest, is considered the most challenging and beautiful of all mountains.

The world’s renowned climber Mr. Reinhold Messner, rates K-2 the toughest of all. In his ascent in company with others he recorded his thoughts: “Ahead of us, there it stands, this summit pyramid. It all makes absolute sense without being at all rational or irrational ... The feelings sometimes comes to me that I have already died and therefore have nothing left to lose. It washes over me in the early morning when I awake from a restless, dreamless sleep. I busy my self and feel inwardly calm and content. Nothing worse can happen to me”.

But why he climbs against such odds is well explained. In reach of the second-highest point on earth he was overwhelmed by his emotions. “I am no longer myself, and yet once again I am”. “The wonderful twilight enfolds me and fills me with freedom – also perhaps with longing and with sadness. It is as if a time awaited me, which has yet to come – the twilight over the valleys.”

He has seen the long, long shadow of K-2 lengthening in the evenings until it casts it pyramid profile many, many kilometers to the east, a unique phenomenon, a spectacle no words can describe and that only a brave few will ever experience, on the top of the world, where man and mountains meet and continent collide.

Almost looks like K2 is alive with the clouds parting around it. Truly amazing, I hope to be able to see this in person one day.
