I'm planning a trip to Canada later this year and looking for some suggestions of places to climb and even some routes.

Denali - Cassin Approach

Planning on climbing the cassin mid-may this year. Does anyone have any beta on how feasible it is to downclimb the west rib from 14k into the north fork instead of slogging up the valley of death?
