“All of us shared that sense of vision of what could possibly be done with a small group of climbers, as light as we could, and as fast as we could.” In 1978, an elite team of American alpinists set off for an unclimbed peak in the remote mountains of Pakistan. The infamous attempt is now considered one of the greatest failures in the history of Amerian alpinism.
