Ride to Waddington?

Is anyone going to the Waddington Range this July with extra space in their helicopter or plane? I'm not looking for climbing partners, just a ride for either myself (200-225 lbs. with gear) or supplies (30-50 lbs.) to and possibly from somewhere near (preferably) Rainy Knob or Dumbbell Lake. Any time between about July 7 and the end of the month will work. I'll pay my share by weight or by person, and can meet ...

Mtn Pass near Denali

I am 71 and interested in walking to a mtn pass in the Denali Range. I would love a suggestion that is about a day’s walk to the pass….a day to enjoy the pass by walking where our interests pull us and then hiking back the following day.

Kilimanjaro(Marangu Rout)

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

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.
