  • VOA News

No American woman climber had sumitted the world's second largest mountain called, K2, in Pakistan until July 28, 2017 when 52-year old Vanessa O'Brian led a team to the top of one the world's most dangerous peaks. She described her adventurous trip to VOA's Ayaz Gul upon her return to Islamabad this week from the northern town of Skardu. The K2 expedition footage was shot her teammate Dawa Gyalje Sherpa and was shared exclusively with VOA.
