OVERVIEW

Mount Denali Expedition

  • Region - North America

  • Duration - 22 Days

  • Grade - Extreme

  • Max Altitude - 6190 m / 20,308 ft

  • Best Season - April-May & October-November

 

The Seven Summits are the highest mountains on each of the seven continents of the Earth – Mount EverestAconcaguaDenaliKilimanjaroElbrusVinsonCarstensz Pyramid. Climbing to the summit of all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge, first achieved on 30 April 1985 by Richard Bass.

 

Mount Denali Climb – Denali offers one of the world's greatest mountaineering challenges. While it is exceeded in elevation by peaks in South America and Asia, its arctic environment, with extreme temperatures and harsh storms, and its great height above the Alaskan plain make it a severe test of personal strength, teamwork, and logistics.

 

The region offers such breath-taking and diverse views each day of the ascent. The panorama from Denali’s summit includes Mt. Foraker, Mt. Hunter, and Mt. Huntington in all their majestic glory. The flight onto the glacier is a trip in itself, presenting overwhelming vistas of the Alaska Range. The West Buttress route remains, by far, the most successfully climbed route on the mountain.

 

No peak in the world has greater relief: Denali rises 17,000 feet above its surrounding plain. In contrast, Kilimanjaro rises 14,000 feet over its surrounding plains and Everest, only 13,000 feet. Vertical elevation gain on Everest from the normal base camp for the South Col route is 11,000 feet; from our landing spot on the Kahiltna Glacier Denali's summit rises another 13,000 feet. Like the tallest mountain on the North American continent, Denali is one of the Seven Summits.
