Climbing Denali 2017
I hope the weather is relatively stable, unlike last year. Several climbers lost fingers and toes to frostbite. One lost his life in a ski accident. I turned back because I didn’t want to suffer the same fate.
I’m editing the book about last year’s expedition titled: Lost At Windy Corner. This location is infamous for 100MPH winds. I enjoyed several face-fulls of flying ice and rock. The shower of marble-sized rocks hitting my helmet even gave me a headache.
That said, Denali is spectacular and beautiful. If you can, it’s worth flying into and landing on the glacier to experience just how huge the Alaska Range really is.
