K2: Triumph And Tragedy
Jim Curran

This is a fascinating book detailing the British attempt to make a first ascent up the North Ridge of K2. More than the mountain climbing, this book offers a perspective on the tedium and level of everyday difficulty associated with these climbs.

This book was a finalist for the 1988 Boardman Tasker Memorial Award.
