Sinopsis:

Endless Knot tells of Diemberger's thirty year obsession with K2, and offers the only first hand account in English of the disaster which claimed the life of Julie Tullis and five others. Eight climbers became trapped by storms at 8000 metres for five days. This is a very moving account of the slow death of those trapped as they fall to the altitude and exhaustion. After five days when death has claimed two, the survivors they make a final bid for freedom. A gripping classic of mountaineering literature.

Synopsis:

An account of the various attempts made by the author through the years to climb K2. It includes the tragic expedition of 1986 when, after conquering the mountain, his party was caught in a blizzard. In the end, only two survived the journey back to base camp.
