Record of the second successful ascent to K2, 23 years after the first ascent by the italians Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni in 1954. Japanese Ichiro Yoshizawa and Ashraf Aman (Pakistan) become the second team to summit. The Japanese expedition, led by Ichiro Yoshizawa, reached the summit via the Abruzzi Spur.
