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 from Dassu 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!
