Other plans fell apart so I changed my objective around to the West Buttress. I ended up taking 12 days total KIA to KIA.

Was I the only member of Kiefer and Haliku's group who threw up on the mountain? (Talkeetna doesn't count) I still can't believe how fast Rush got me the throw up bag. He definately saved the tent.
Great day on the summit, no wind, pretty warm!

Part of the excellent group from Colorado with Kiefer, Haliku, etc. Got sick at 14k camp, and tried to go higher, but realized it wasn't meant to be. After that my mind/body weren't in it, and I went down with some Mexicans and got drunk at base camp. Still a great trip with great partners...will have to come back.

Team Summit Bound (Kiefer, media dude, astrobassman, cheeseburgler, rush and myself) put four of the six members on the summit late that day. What views! The summit ridge was windless and beautiful.

Chris and I both had our 21st birthdays at 14k. Summited from 14k in 13 hours round trip. Perfect weather.

Good weather in teh beginning and then Vendula and I got stuck at the high camp (17,400) for three horrible days in high winds and some pretty cold temps. At the first "lull" in the weather we hightailed down to 14k, waited another day and then off. The window didn't open until after another week or so so I don't feel too bad about abandoning the attempt. There is always a next time.

Reached Denali Pass before I ran out of steam. I'll need to train harder for the next attempt. Weather was pretty bad anyways. Good overall weather and great friends made it a fun trip though.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2007
Spent 13 days at 14K camp, although there were a couple of hauls to 17K camp. On June 9th climbing partners Kalet and bc44caesar left for high camp, but I had no energy. I went up to 17K camp the next day as parners summitted. I tried on the 11th only to be caught in the thickening clouds and turned around at Denali Pass....as the 14th of June return airline ticket reared its head. Ironic that the next day....June 12th was the highest number of summits of the year at 77. I was there for photography though and this truely worth it!!

Our team originally had its sights set on the West Rib, then the Upper West Rib cutoff, but ultimately we wimped out and climbed the butt. 12 hrs RT from 17k camp. I barely felt the altitude! Great weather. Trip report and photo links coming soon.

After spending 6 days at the 14k' camp and then another 5 days at the 17k' camp due to high winds, summited on 5/30 Friday. Total of 19 days to the summit. Started out as a part of 5-person rope team, but was solo above the 14k' camp, as rest of the team could not wait out the storms. Fortunately, I was climbing totally self-sufficient in terms of gear from the start: my own tent, two stoves, shovel, saw, repair kits, etc.. The heavy pack and sled made the climb and the solo descent especially memorable. Denali, what a mountain! It was worth the time, money, and effort!!!

You're too modest Peter. Your 6 hour round trip time from 17K camp is pretty amazing. Well done!

Summited on the 16th day of the trip. What an awesome experience! Started out in a whiteout but we climbed above the clouds at Denali Pass and it turned out to be a cold but fine summit day!. It took about 13 hours RT from 17K camp.

This is my 23rd state highpoint.
