Adrian Hayes details an intensely personal account of his attempts to climb K2 - the second highest and deadliest mountain in the world - in 2013 and again in 2014. The gripping narrative seamlessly shifts between his guilt and struggles as a father amid tumultuous personal circumstances, the profound events on K2 and the powerful lessons for our lives in the world below. Absorbing and self-reflective, his journey is as much a story of climbing a mountain as it is a compass for conquering the mountain within all of us."@en ;
