The Gilkey Memorial is a memorial for those who have died while climbing K2. The memorial is named after Art Gilkey who died on the mountain in 1953.

John’s spirit can be felt everywhere. He lives on in each of the people he deeply and positively impacted here in Pakistan. Today, our hearts are with Lina, John’s family, his friends and children and the people of Iceland who treasured this one of a kind beautiful soul.
