Ascent Trip ReportI've hiked in 6 continents, a large number of the world's major mountain ranges and completed many of the classic Bucket List treks. However, the expedition from Dassu to Concordia and back is by far the most awe-inspiring, beautiful & fulfilling trek I've ever done. The Kilkey Memorial/K2 Basecamp was the highest point achieved and K2 the most impressive mountain I've ever seen. Furthermore I met my future wife on the trip!
