R. Pichler – Denali 2011

The performance of your guides was outstanding. I have been in many serious situations in my life and witnessed leadership qualities both good and bad, your guides worked exceptionally under pressure and always kept a positive attitude, clearly communicating to each other and all of us throughout the ascent, summit, descent and the events on the lower glacier. Their organizational skills and scheduling proved great, they were humorous at times, and the concern for our health was always evident. All three have great culinary skills, they prepared some wonderful meals for us. What amazed me most about these three is they truly witnessed us all at our worst when we were dead tired and worn out from the hard day’s climb and dealing with the cold and altitude and it was at this time that they all shined and were at their BEST doing what they do! What a great adventure, Thank You All!
