Located on the border between Pakistan and China, K2 is the secondhighest mountain on Earth. For many climbers, it is an even greater prize than Everest, with limited routes, a steeper ascent, and a harder push to its summit. In 2008, a tragic disaster on K2 claimed the lives of 11 mountaineers. 
Four of those who lost their lives in the disaster were porters hired to carry the equipment and provisions of foreign climbing expeditions. Despite being paid at rates far below those received by international expedition leaders, such porters – whether they provide critical supplies to expedition base camps or take on higher-altitude tasks in support of ascending climbers – take on difficult and dangerous work. These efforts make them worthy of recognition as the true heroes of mountaineering. 
Iara Lee chronicles the lives of those who make possible ascents of the world's tallest mountains, including both Pakistani porters and Nepalese sherpas.
