K2 The Tragedy by rogelio Hernandez on Prezi
No provisions had reached him from lower camps, so all three went down to the next camp, which they found abandoned. Wolfe was again left on his own while the two others, al ready suffering frostbite, went further down the mountain to find the rest of the team members who, convinced the three men were already dead, had retreated back to the bottom of the mountain.

Wolfe spent a further week high up the mountain on his own before a rescue team of sherpas reached him. He told them he could not start the climb down that day but would try, after eating and drinking, the following day.
The sherpas spent the night at the next camp down and were unable to climb the following day due to bad weather. Three of them set out the following morning to get Wolfe while a fourth descended the mountain.

Neither Wolfe nor the three sherpas were seen again. On his return, Wiessner published an article in a mountaineering magazine blaming Durrance. Then, five years ago, two American authors laid responsibility for Wolfe's death squarely on the dilettante's own shoulders and on the ambitious Wiessner.
Durrance, an internationally respected climber who had remained silent about the matter, then told the Rocky Mountain News that Wolfe had gone on the expedition in order to try to impress his ex-wife. SearchWorks Catalog Stanford Libraries. Kauffman and William L.
