No Way Down
The story of the 2008 summer assault on K2 by a number of different national teams. Needles to say, the going gets tough as summit teams only reach the top a bit late in the day, cooperation between the different national teams is flakey, the sun sets and the weather turns bad...
Frostbite, dodgy fixed ropes, avalanches, missing climbers and rash decisions. Written by a journalist after the events, based on interviews with survivors. I enjoyed this book, the first one since the birth of L.
