K2 On a Budget - Your Own

I tire of climbers who say, "Oh, if I just had the money I'd go climb all sorts of peaks. I'd slay the big ones and set all sorts of recoreds" as then they lift yet another PBR and sigh. Gimme a friggin' break.

On August 1 a 23 year old Japaneese woman not only knocked off the toughest high altitude peak in the world by climbing K2 via the SSE Ridge but she worked 3 jobs to fund it the old fashioned way. Nice work!

Commentary by eBomb from Get Outdoors on this is worth reading.
