Ed Viesturs Tells Us About His New Book!

Another interesting video today, this time featuring Ed Viesturs who gives us the low down on his new book entitled K2: Life and Death on the World’s Most Dangerous Mountain and currently scheduled for release on October 13th.

In the video, which was incidentally shot just two days after Ed summitted Everest in the spring, he tells us a bit more about what we can expect in the new book. He focuses on the six most critical season on K2, including last year’s tragedy. He’ll also share more thoughts on his experience on the mountain, including stuff he left out of No Shortcuts to the Top. Ed says that K2 taught him a valuable lesson about trusting his instincts, and that is something that he carried with him on the other 8000m peaks.

The book looks like it’s going to be another good one, and I should have a review up before it’s released. I know a lot of people are really looking forward to this one.
