Khoo Swee Chiow takes on his ultimate and most dangerous challenge yet: K2. He is the first Singaporean and first Southeast Asian to summit this mighty peak. Nicknamed the "Savage Mountain" for its remoteness, ruggedness and unpredictable weather, K2 is the holy grail of mountaineering. One in four clumbers who attempt it doesn't return, a death rate six times higher than Mount Everest's. As if the severe conditions on the mountain weren't challenging enough, Khoo has to deal with an eye problem that leaves him with blurred vision for part of the way. With death never far on the mountain, it takes calm nerves, a steely focus and a bit of help from nature to reach the summit.

This is the sobering, detailed and inspirational account of Khoo's triumphant climb.
