North America’s Highest and Most Impressive Peak

Denali is North America’s high­est moun­tain and one of its most impres­sive in terms of sheer mass, weath­er and climb­ing his­to­ry. The clas­sic West But­tress Route requires only inter­me­di­ate tech­ni­cal climb­ing skills; but per­se­ver­ance, intense phys­i­cal exer­tion, team­work and patient acclima­ti­za­tion are all nec­es­sary for this climb. Many climbers find this to be the most chal­leng­ing thing they have done in the mountains.
