The first successful 8000er, Reinhold Messner’s said “K2 is the mountain of mountains. It is the most impressive but the most difficult peak in the world. K2 has variously been described as the “awesome”, “killer”, “savage” and “the mountain of mountains”.

Over the next 18 years, five female climbers made K2 successful but all 5 were killed. Three died during the descent down on K2 after summit, two others died nearby mountains.
