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.

TomekKDenali Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 27, 2010


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.

Great climb, till I got bronchitis at camp 11! Z pak and a full round of drugs could only get me to 19,200' where the lungs said No Mas! Sad, I felt terrific physically but the lungs did not cooperate. I'll be BACK for sure. What a great mountain! Scott

Myself and a group from the Cops on Top organization nailed the summit on May 21st 2010 at 7:30 pm. We were an unguided expedition that climbed on behalf of Trooper Michael Haynes of the Montana Highway Patrol who was killed in the line of duty.

Spent a half hour on top by myself with my gloves off. Maybe 10 degrees (F) and NO wind. The sun warmed my face! Solid undercast. Could only see Huntington and Foracre. No one else on the ridge. Spent the night before at Denali Pass (18,000'?) with Ray Genet and his girlfriend. Took a hot bath at 14,200' on the way down! Caught in a snow storm for 3 days half way to base camp (5 of us in our 4 man tent). What a beautiful & clean Mountain!!!

We had a storm at 11' Camp and sat there for three days. In High Camp for seven nights with bad weather above us, before summitting. An 8th night before hiking out again. Steak and Beer in Talkeetna after flying out. Highest state highpoint in the bag.
