Kaltenbrunner and K2

This article in National Geographic, about Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner’s climb of K2 and her climb to the pinnacle of high-altitude mountaineering. She was also selected as one of Nat Geo’s adventurers of the year for 2012. 

While the article itself is a great read, this interactive map of the North Ridge of K2 is pretty stellar as well.
