K2 – One Woman’s Quest for the Summit

Heidi Howkins

“… On her first effort in 1998, Howkins became one of the handful of women to attempt the peak. On her second attempt in 2000, she was determined to once again climb this daunting peak alpine-style – without the aid of porters or supplemental oxygen – a feat accomplished by very few mountaineers. Se knew the risks as well as anyone … but even her long experience could not prepare her for what happened high on K2’s deadly slopes.

Heidi Howkins is a pofessional climber. She set a new standard for female alpinists in 1996 by summiting Gasherbrum II in a two-day push from Base Camp, and in 1997 she became the first woman to successfully reach the base of the summit pyramid on Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world. More recently she has led expeditions to both Everest and K2. …”
