Adrian Heyes: One Man’s Climb - A Journey of Trauma, Tragedy and Triumph on K2

One Man’s Climb: A Journey of Trauma, Tragedy and Triumph on K2

 A deeply moving story of the beauty and brutality of life, and death, on the world's most unpredictable and perilous mountain. Adrian Hayes details an intensely personal account of his attempts to climb K2 - the notorious second highest mountain in the world - in 2013 and again in 2014. In this gripping narrative, the author seamlessly shifts between his guilt and struggles as a father amid tumultuous personal circumstances; the profound events on K2 and the powerful lessons for our lives in the world below. Absorbing and self-reflective, his journey is as much a story of climbing a mountain as it is a compass for conquering the mountain within all of us. Signed copies of his book will be available on the night
