The name K2 was given by his colleague, Thomas Montgomery, it being the second peak of the Karakoram range. "Chogo Ri" is its name locally, which means The Great Mountain. "Ketu" is used by the Balti people who act as porters in the region. K2 towers over the Concordia glacial field at the head of the Baltoro glacier.
