In 1902, an international team of six embarked on an ambitious expedition to the Karakoram. Their goal - the first ascent of K2 (8,611m). During their six-month expedition they achieved a high point of 6,525m, valuable data was
collected from which the first map was produced, and the first known photographs of K2 were taken.
We are pleased to offer, from the Bob A. Schelfhout Aubertijn Collection, magnificent, never-before-published prints of this historic first photograph of K2.

Pete Schoening Collection:
We are most pleased to offer a number of items from the collection of American mountaineer Pete Schoening (1927-2004).
Pete is best remembered in mountaineering circles for performing 'The Belay' during the dramatic descent of K2 by the Third
American Karakoram Expedition in 1953. Pete's heroics saved six men. However, Pete had many other mountain
adventures, before and after K2, including: numerous climbs with Fred Beckey (1948-49), Mount Saugstad (1st ascent, 1951),
Mount Augusta (1st ascent) and King Peak (2nd & 3rd ascents, 1952), Gasherburm I/Hidden Peak (1st ascent, 1958), McKinley (1960),
Mount Vinson (1st ascent, 1966), Pamirs (1974), Aconcagua (1995), Kilimanjaro (1995), Everest (1996), plus countless
climbs in the Pacific NW. All items have Pete's circular 'Ex Libris Pete Schoening' bookplate.
