Denali May/June 2016

Anyone interested in climbing Denali this year let me know. We're looking for one maybe two more members for our group. Got to decide soon running out of time to register.
West Buttress or Cassin Ridge. I'd be happy with either it'll all depend on the abilities of the group we get together.
Here is a list of my experience:

Mt. Shasta (4 ascents)
Mt Whitney (Mountaineers Rout 2 ascents one solo)
Kilimanjaro(Marangu Rout)
Borah ...

Denali training suggestions

I live at 400 feet elevation and the highest hill I can easily go up gets to about 900 feet. I've got a heavy backpack and something I can use as a sled. I obviously can't imitate the weather or elevation conditions, but maybe I can train hard enough to get myself to withstand those conditions. Probably put up to 80 lbs in my pack and 100 in the cart to make up the difference. ...

smokers

Is it possible for a cigarette smoker to climb Denali? I honestly think that there's nobody better than me at 'mind over matter', but that means nothing when it comes to safety.

Suggestions for climbing areas

I'm planning a trip to Canada later this year and looking for some suggestions of places to climb and even some routes.
I'm mostly looking at mountaineering and alpine climbing, but also rock climbing. I haven't been to Canada before and looking for some tips on places I should research further.

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?
I'm trying to minimize my glacier travel time.

Thanks.

Climate change and Denali conditions

I have been to the Alaska Range 5 times... the first in 1988, the last in 2014.
On all of those we flew in to Kahiltna International.
The last trip (early June 2014) I was a bit surprised by the warm and decaying conditions down low.
We were there to do West Buttress of Hunter. Got only to the Cat's Ears. No way was it gonna happen. We would have drowned.
Was told by several ...
