Salt Lake City, Utah – In 1939, American adventurer Dudley Wolfe set out to become the first man to summit K2, the world's second highest, but deadliest peak.

It was more than 60 years later when journalist Jennifer Jordan found his remains on the glacier at the base. Tuesday, Jordan joins Doug to talk about her new book, The Last Man on the Mountain.
