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.

Two man unguided team, both summited. Made the summit on day 11 in a very small weather window. Made the push to 17k with no cache and went for the summit the next day.

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...

One BIG Rat Feeder. 17 hours 38 minutes round trip from 17 Camp. Waiting lines coming down the summit ridge and above Denali Pass. Outstanding trip except for a "non-textbook" crevasse fall 1.5 hours from KIA. Glacier conditions were mine-field crazy with our group having 5+ punch throughs and my two way "ride" in the course of an hour. Pinned down by pack for 30 minutes 5+ feet under: Many thanks Zach, Ben and Caitlin for getting me out! 14th US state highpoint.

A summit that is hard to enjoy with the deaths of Suzanne and Peter the following day from AAI. RIP Guys.

Got stuck at High Camp for 7 days. Third in our party waited (patiently) at Medical Camp. Weather never let up but did meet Aron Ralston at MC. Had a lot of fun. Cached 'Freedom of the Hills' along with several other unneeded artifacts far below.

I did Denali traverse with my buddy. Ascent by West Buttress and descent by Muldrow Glacier. We were the only team sucessfuly crossing Muldrow this season. Ascent in 10days was in beutiful weather and pretty straighforward. Decent was by far my most dangerous adventure including falling in numerous cervasses (one really deep, getting out in whiteout took me 2 hours), almost loosing a ten, findig way out in glacier maze, crossing rivers, milions mosquitos and constant stress. I recommend this route for any mountaineer with sense of adventure and tired of tipical "normal route" crowd. life-changing experience

Seemed to be cruising the mountain when my partner got sick on what would have been our summit day. I would have liked to stay and finish the job but it didn't work out that way. 17 days on the mountain and already looking forward to next year. I don't normally sign the climber's log for an unsuccessful trip but I feel this one was worth noting. Saw Tim Medvets at 11k haha.
