Ascent Trip Report

I've trekked in 6 continents, including many of the more famous trips (Everest, Kilimanjaro, John Muir Trail, Tour du Mont Blanc, Milford Track, etc), but the trek to Concordia is by far the most awe-inspiring, beautiful & fulfilling trek I've ever done. The Kilkey Memorial/K2 Basecamp was the highest point achieved. Furthermore I met my future wife on the trip!
