sbkelleyWest Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2013


Successful trip and an adventure for the ages for our unguided group of six - 5 from CO, and 1 from AZ! 16 days from Kahiltna Base to the summit and back. Spent 4 nights at 17k camp, but patience paid off. 12 hour summit day, and temps on top were around -10 with light winds and full sun. Can't beat that! Long, long descent, but it felt good to get back to Talkeetna.

Went up the West Buttress and then down the Muldrow Glacier. The way out is what made the trip!

Date Climbed: May 20, 2012


Climbed the West Buttress with Jennifer Knezek, and John Judd. Started on May 2nd, got caught in a snow storm at 14,000 and summited a few days later. Rescued a Russian climber who fell off the ridge above Washburn's Thumb, luckily, Jennifer saw him fall about 100 feet where he hit a large rock before a 2,000 foot death fall. Erik from Holland tied into the end of our rope at the start of the Autobahn since no one in his group was going. Great summit day. Took a rest day at 17,000 and headed back to Kahiltna Base Camp.
What a grand adventure!!

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2011


I climbed Denali in may and june 2011, with a group guided by the Alaska Mountaineering School. The trip only took 16 days, including 3 days at high camp (17k). We were all very happy to summit during the one day weahter window. It was a bit busy though.

zoomlocoAlpine style solo ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 13, 2011


Overnights at 11k at 2 nights at 14k before a push to the summit on day 4 via west buttress. Most parties were huddled at 17k camp because of supposedly bad conditions but one other party also summited that day, the last decent day of the weather window for the next 4 days.

What a zoo. Buttress has too many people on it that do not belong. Our group went unguided and got the summit on 11th day from arrival. Spent a bit too much time at 17K camp waiting out a storm. Got our window and went up to the summit in about 4 hours from camp. Next time coming here for Cassin!!!
Beautiful mountain, a lot of other things to do around and on it in the future. Cassin ridge is waiting...
