A beautiful climb, storms happened to be on our rest days so we got lucky! A lot more to explore in the range.

Climbed West Buttress Route with RMI. Great weather until 17K where we were pinned in for 12 days. Finally got a clear morning and summit shot. All made it safely down. Great trip.

Vitaliy M.

can be a bit fun if you do the parts with fixed ropes unroped...way too overprotected route, but than again- there are too many idiots on it

Climbed the West Butt route again with Sue. The mountain kicked her ass and we turned around at Windy Corner. Two weeks after getting home she began training harder and plans to be back next year.

Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2008


Our team originally had its sights set on the West Rib, then the Upper West Rib cutoff, but ultimately we wimped out and climbed the butt. 12 hrs RT from 17k camp. I barely felt the altitude! Great weather. Trip report and photo links coming soon.

Date Climbed: May 30, 2008


After spending 6 days at the 14k' camp and then another 5 days at the 17k' camp due to high winds, summited on 5/30 Friday. Total of 19 days to the summit. Started out as a part of 5-person rope team, but was solo above the 14k' camp, as rest of the team could not wait out the storms. Fortunately, I was climbing totally self-sufficient in terms of gear from the start: my own tent, two stoves, shovel, saw, repair kits, etc.. The heavy pack and sled made the climb and the solo descent especially memorable. Denali, what a mountain! It was worth the time, money, and effort!!!
