Free K2

An Italian expedition organized in 1990 on K2, the second highest mountain in the world, in the Karakoram range of Pakistan, to remove fixed ropes and discarded gear left behind by expeditions that have attempted the ascent before. The expedition went up to 7000 m, at the end of the Abruzzi spur, which, together with the base camp, was cleared of tons of rubbish and other stuff left behind by climbing parties, thus deteriorating the aspect and the “wildness” of the whole area. It was the very first such cleaning expedition in the Himalayas.

This book is large format and heavy, so extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.
