Detailed Product Description
New York, American Alpine Club, 1934. 19 pp, b/w photos. Softcover. Fine.

Reprint from the American Alpine Journal Vol. 9, No. 1, Issue 28, 1954. Bates' harrowing account of the 1953 attempt on K2. Bates and Houston returned to K2 with a new expedition in 1953. The expedition failed due to bad weather and the illness of Art Gilkey, but was widely praised for the courage shown by the team in their unsuccessful attempt to save Gilkey. During the descent, Bates and five other climbers were involved in a near-fatal fall, saved only by the strength of Pete Schoening, who was the last man on the rope. Bates later received the David A. Sowles Memorial Award for his part in the attempted rescue.
