Rick Ridgeway’s account of his extraordinary ascent of K2, the world’s second-highest mountain, is a riveting tale of adventure and endurance. Ridgeway and his team of climbers set out from the base of the mountain in May of 1995, just a few months after a failed attempt by another team. They battled extreme conditions and tremendous altitude-loss on their way to the summit, finally reaching it on July 8, 1996. Ridgeway’s account of his experiences on K2 is both heartbreaking and inspiring.; 4to; 301 pages.
