K2 as seen from Concordia glacier in Pakistan. Steamboat Springs’ Dr. Eric Meyer traveled to climb K2 in summer 2008 and was on the mountain when falls and avalanches claimed 11 lives. K2 is the second-tallest mountain in the world, but it is considered the most difficult to climb. It has claimed nearly one life for every three who have reached its summit.
Eric Meyer sits atop Mount Everest in 2004. Meyer, who grew up climbing in Montana and Wyoming, topped Everest and also attempted another 8,000-meter peak before traveling in summer 2008 to attempt to climb K2 in Pakistan. He has said it’s difficult even to compare Everest to K2. The latter is considered the most difficult mountain in the world.
