Mount K2, also known as Godwin Austen, Ketu and Chhogori, is located on the border of Pakistan and China, in the Karakorum mountain range. K2 Mountain, which is recorded as the second highest mountain in the world after Mount Everest with a length of 8,611 meters, is one of the most difficult mountains to climb. Many mountaineers wanted to climb K2 Mountain, but they were not successful.

Mount K2 is a mountain known for killing helping people more than climbers. These people, who are in charge of helping the mountaineers and carrying the necessary items, work on this mountain because they are very low-income and needy people, and every four climbers have one assistant, but the helpers often lose their lives while doing this job. Since one helper for every four climbers lost his life, even climbing to K2 Mountain was asked to be stopped, but the mountaineers did not give up their passion. The deaths experienced while climbing Mount K2 have decreased in recent years thanks to the development of technology and the experiences of mountaineers. The first successful climb to K2 Mountain was carried out in 1954 by Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni.

This mountain, where there are many steep cliffs, becomes incredibly dangerous when combined with ice, but it continues to maintain its place as an indispensable for adrenaline enthusiasts. The first to climb Mount Baintha Brakk were Doug Scott and Chris Bonington.

Other climbing difficulties on Vinson Mountain, where high costs are the main climbing difficulties, are cold and storms and extraordinary conditions of the mountain.

Cerro Fitz Roy Mountain, a 3,406-meter-high granite mountain in the Argentine Patagonia in South America, is not dangerous in terms of altitude, but the mountain's granite surface, shape, and unusual weather conditions are extremely dangerous even for professional climbers.

While a hundred climbers can climb Mount Everest a year, only a few people can hardly climb Mount Cerro Fitz Roy. The first successful climb to Cerro Fitz Roy Mountain was made by Lionel Terray and his group in 1952, and the first successful solo climb was made by Thomas Bubendorfer in 1986.
