Any mountain climbers on the forum? I know that forum members have discussed books we've read on mountain climbing. Today there's a ceremony dedicating (unveiling) a sculpture of K2, the world's second-tallest mountain. This ceremony honors Ephrata mountaineering legacies of Jim Wickwire and Fred Dunham. Wickwire and Dunham were part of the American team who attempted to ascend K2 in 1975, unsuccessfully. Wickwire returned in 1978 and reached the summit (team members included Lue Reiehardt, John Roskelley and Rick Ridgeway). Wickwire and Dunham are now 81.
