A personal account of the large Japanese expedition which made the second ascent of K2 in 1977. This large, 50-person Japanese expedition made three attempts before finally placing seven climbers on the summit over the course of two consecutive days. This large-format book makes a nice accompaniement to the official account by the Japan Mountaineering Association, ‘At the End of the White Glacier K2 8,611m’. In Japanese, no English translation.
