The successful 1978 American expedition placed the first four Americans (Louis Reichardt, Rick Ridgeway, John Roskelly, and Jim Wickwire) on top of K2, the world’s second highest mountain and arguably the most difficult. Three of the team reached the summit without the use of supplemental oxygen. This is a great story. This particular copy, in addition to being signed by Wickwire, is signed by eight members of the pioneering 1953 American expedition. The signature of Nill House is particularly scarce.

Neate R33, Yak R110.
