K2 no O2: The One that Should Have Gotten Away

 

Sometimes on a big climb, everything just falls into place and you know you will summit. Experience, conditions, weather, other teams… it just feels right. K2 in the summer of 2019 was not that. Too many climbers, the most snow in three decades, parasites, exhaustion before even starting. On K2, the key to success was inexorable forward progress even when belief was impossible.
