This video is filmed like a travelogue and feels like it was edited in the garage. There is some good information in the DVD, if you can stay awake while watching it. I expected more quality and more information for 30.00.

I bought this movie to get some good info on Denali, since it is the summit of

North America. I expected it to be at least the same quality as Ascend Rainier,but it wasn't . The gear review section was very sub par. and the film was graine. Read a book befor you buy this. If you must get it I guess you will.

Basically the worst climbing video I've watched besides vertical limit (can you call that one a climbing vid?). It is nothing like Ascend Mt. Rainier (which is good). More of a history. It's still fun to watch, it's just that I'd rather watch any other mountaineering film instead.
