Very elegant line

The most skiable line on the south face of K2. Awesome route

2008 K2 SSE Spur Climb

Got to 8,250 meters via the south-southeast spur route on August 1st, 2008. Turned back thanks to frostbite in my fingers and good thing I did, because that was the day that 11 other climbers died after the serac broke apart and cut the ropes... Heading back to K2 in 2009 to attempt the North Ridge! Anyone have any pictures of the route/camps or any advice. This route is rarely climbed, and there are very few photos of the Chinese side easily available. Thanks!
