Ed Viesturs talks about K2: Life and Death on the Worlds Most Dangerous Mountain

Ed Viesturs has a book about K2 that will be released shortly.This book will discuss 6 of the most famous climbing expeditions and incidents that have happened on this mountain. He will also talk about the time he made the summit of K2 in 1992.

Viesturs said that climbing K2 taught him a valuable lesson about climbing in general. It taught him to follow his instincts. On the day that he summitted K2 in 1992 he did not listen to his instincts. Yet he made it to the top and back safely.

Of interest is that he will include more information about the time that he climbed K2. He had previously written a book and explained what happened on that expedition.

Viesturs regards K2 as the holy grail of mountaineering.
