History of the peak and description of Messner's 1979 expedition with Michel Dacher. One of the scarcest of Messner's titles. K2, the second highest mountain in the world, is the hardest to surmount of all the eight-thousanders. Twenty-five years after the first ascent by a large Italian expedition.

In 1954, Reinhold Messner determined to climb K2 by its most difficult route, his projected Magic Line. With a small team, he set off in May 1979. Unavoidable delays and two accidents during the approach march forced the team to settle for the Abruzzi (Spur) route. On 12th July, after a brilliant climb, Messner and Michi Dacher successfully reached the summit The book includes writings by some of the other expedition members as well as a history of earlier K2 expeditions.
