Considered one of the most beautiful mountains in the world and, at 8000 metres high, the most difficult to climb, K2 lies on the border between Pakistan and China.

For mountaineers Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Ralf Dujmovits, DLR's 3D model provides an ideal opportunity to plan and analyse their ascent of K2 at the end of June.
