Perhaps the best shot ever taken of mountaineers on K2. These are legendary American mountaineers Ed Viesteurs and Scott Fischer on the deadly traverse on K2 just above the Bottleneck. This part is the crux of the climb! Photo taken by Charley Mace during their climb in 1992.
Ed Viesturs describes his climbing experiences on Annapurna. He is the first American to have climbed all fourteen of the world's eight-thousander mountain peaks including the summit of Mt. Everest 7xs without the use of supplemental Oxygen.
