Climb Mt McKinley/Denali with Adventure Consultants!
Mt McKinley, known as Denali (‘The High One’) by Alaska’s native Athabascan people, is situated in the Alaska Range at latitude 63° North - 390miles/628km from the Arctic Circle. The highest mountain on the North American continent, it is one of the much sought after Seven Summits.
The expedition follows the West Buttress Route which is technically straightforward but also considered a true ‘expedition’ ascent and a demanding climb. Adventure Consultants operates this expedition in conjunction with our North American partners, the American Alpine Institute, who are an approved Denali National Park concessionaire with extensive guiding experience on Denali. We fly from Talkeetna to Base Camp on the southeast fork of the Kahiltna Glacier at 7,000ft/2,134m.
From there we commence the climb of the West Buttress moving through increasingly higher camps until we are in a position to ascend to the summit. An ascent of Denali is a physically challenging, yet incredibly rewarding experience.
