Record # of climbers summit Denali

by Alpinist » Thu Jul 25, 2013 5:09 am

A record number of climbers (787) reached the summit of Denali this year. Also, a 78 year man broke the record as the oldest person ever to summit the mountain...

Yeah, I was the 78-year-old man's partner.

That's a great story. Glad to see a local reclaim the record.
