Regardless of what you, me, us and any climbers think of 'Mount McKinley' or the guy it was named after, it is the official name and many people both in the US and overseas know it by that name. If Summitpost is to be a genuine, comprehensive and credible reference it can not simply exclude something so fundamental based solely on opinion, ignoring fact. Maybe have the official name up front with Denali, then just use only the latter throughout the text (never referring to it as 'Mount Denali' as if you're some dumbs#*t newsreader).

It is interesting that Google searching for "Denali" has 8 times as many links and "Mount McKinley", though again this is somewhat scewed by products (such as GMC Denali) using the Denali name.

How many Americans say "I could care less" when they really mean "I couldn't care less"? Aerosol cheese, trans fats, Hall & Oates, DDT and Sarah Palin have all been popular at one time or another ...
