Format: Paperback
This is one of the most gripping stories. It's hard to believe that it is a true story. You will gasp for breath as Jim details their ascent up K2 and will cry as he painfully recounts the descent. Even if you are not a mountaineer or even have any interest in it, this story is more about friendship, success, triumph, and loss. I would also suggest Jim's book, RISKING ADVENTURE, detailing his other journeys. Although Jim was not an author by profession, he has the gift for narrative writing that keeps you interested page by wonderful page. ENJOY!

Yes, this book has pretty pictures, but Mantovani's K2: Challenging the Sky is prettier. I'm not sure why anybody would buy this book. It's not so much that anything is wrong with it, as that so many better (longer, more detailed, better written) books have been published on the subject. Go buy Curran's books or The Last Step: you'll be happier.

As thin as the air up there. July 19 2014
By H.R. Grider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great story! My only complaint is that it's too short, the pictures too few, and it's kind of a small book. Not hardcover and maybe as thick as thick as a special edition magazine issue. Still, any story that details an ascent of K2 is for me. A great add to any mountaineers library.

This is like a picture story book. Everything is detailed from Islamabad to the Summit. And yes you can see the best shot of Bottle Neck in this book.
