Iconic mountains draw the attention of climbers from around the world, and Denali is certainly an iconic mountain. The highest peak in North America, Mount McKinley rises a full 18,000 feet (5500m) above the surrounding landscape. It is truly a magnificent sight, dominating the horizon for well over a hundred miles away.

We will do our best to post daily updates and the team will try to call in daily, but please understand that this is not a perfect process and there will undoubtedly be days with no updates. We ask that you please hold on to the climbing axiom of, “No News is GOOD NEWS!”
We encourage you to post comments, but please understand tha those comments will probably not be seen by your friends or love dones until they return from their climb. Such comments are an integral part of the experience for the climbers, and you should definitely post some. To do so, click on the title of a given post and append your comments to that individual post.
