K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth (8,611 metres) in the Karakoram Range, and is located on the border between Pakistan and China.

An Italian expedition first climbed K2 on July 31, 1954. Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni reached the summit although the expedition was led by Ardito Desio. The team included a Pakistani member, Colonel Muhammad Ata-ullah, Italian climber Walter Bonatti and Pakistani porter Mahdi, who proved vital to the expedition's success in that they carried oxygen to 26,600 feet for Lacedelli and Compagnoni.
