Summits: 1340

Alaska 2010+2012

These pictures are from two separate attempts to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley). On both trips, we made it to high camp (17200′), just a day away from the summit. One injured and one sick partner on the first trip (pics 1-21) led to a turnaround, and a frostbitten partner and bad weather forced a retreat on the second trip. Between both trips I’ve spent a total of 32 days in the beautiful Alaska Range, time I enjoyed very much (I have yet to decide on whether I’ll return however). I had a few days worth of sightseeing at the tail end of each trip, the second time renting a motorcycle.
