June 5 and June 11 Denali teams call from the SUMMIT, 20,310′!

Climbers from both the June 5 and the June 11 Denali West Buttress Expeditions called with ecstatic hellos and shout-outs to report that they had reached the highest point in North America!!

Their visibility from the summit was somewhat obscured by clouds, but they had little to no wind for their ascent and mild weather. It took the teams a little less than 8 hours to reach the summit from High Camp. They arrived at Denali’s peak at approximately 6:00 pm on June 23.


Denali, as seen from the air. Reaching the summit of this massive mountain is a great accomplishment and feat of determination, grit and teamwork.

Here are the majority climbers and guides of the June 5 and June 11 Mountain Trip teams! We’ll let them do the majority of the talking on this one:

We would like to wish all of the successful climbers a big CONGRATULATIONS on reaching the summit of Denali! We do not have the names of exactly who reached the summit yet, but we do know that the day went smoothly, and all climbers are in good health and good spirits.

We will post photos, audio updates from each team and the details of summit day as soon as they become available.
