Herrligkoffer is best known as an expedition leader, and a controversial one at that, with 33 years of expeditions to the Himalaya. In this nicely presented book he recounts the two-pronged expedition of 1986 to both K2 and Broad Peak. On K2 Jerzy Kukuczka and Tadeusz Piotrowski made a magnificent ascent of the South Face without supplemental oxygen. Sadly, Piotrowski was killed in a fall on the descent. On Broad Peak five members managed to reach the top. An appendix summarizes his expeditions. In German, no English translation.
