Detailed Product Description


Saser Kangri 2 East: Steve Swenson, Mark Richey and Freddie Wilkinson

Seattle, 2017, 1st edition. 256 pp, photos, index. Fine-New hardcover with dust jacket.

Karakoram is world-class alpinist Steve Swenson's personal story of climbing K2 and other peaks in the Karakoram Range that straddles the borders of China, India, and Pakistan,  story told against the backdrop of extreme altitude and conflict between these nations for control of Kashmir. Love of climbing mountains has led Swenson to the summits of some of the highest and most dangerous peaks in the world.

Over the years, he developed a deep respect for the rugged landscapes and local people found in the remote Karakoram Range in Pakistan. Join him on the trail for numerous attempts on these 8000-meter peaks, getting an intimate look at everything from expedition dynamics among his various climbing partners to the logistics of trip planning. Especially rewarding is the fond relationship that develops between Swenson and Rasool, one of the Balti porters that he becomes close to.

Steve Swenson has been climbing for 45 years. He has made solo ascents of K2 and Everest, both without supplementary oxygen. In 2012 he and his partners made the first ascent of Saser Kangri II East in 2011(24,665 ft, 7518 meters), the second highest unclimbed mountain in the world, a feat for which they were awarded the prestigious Piolet d'Or. Swenson is a past president of the American Alpine Club and has written articles for the American Alpine Journal, as well as for Climbing, Rock & Ice, and Alpinist magazines. He and his wife, Ann Dalton, divide their time between Seattle and Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
