K2, called locally Dapsang or Chogori and dubbed the Savage Mountain, is the world’s second highest peak—bested by only 779 feet by Mount Everest. Towering 28,251 feet along the Pakistan-China border in the Karakoram range, the peak is known for its incredible steepness, technical difficulty, avalanche danger and quickly changing weather conditions.
On Sept. 6 and 7, 1978, a 14-person team worked together to get four members to the summit, becoming the first Americans and third team in history to do so. Forty years later, it remains among the most notable achievements in American mountaineering history.
Led by famed climber Jim Whittaker, the first American to summit Everest, the team consisted of a mostly Seattle-based group: Craig Anderson, Cherie Bech, Terry Bech, Chris Chandler, Albert “Skip” Edmonds, Diana Jagersky, Louis Reichardt, Rick Ridgeway, Dianne Roberts, John Roskelley, Robert Schaller, Bill Sumner, Jim Whittaker and Jim Wickwire.
