Mt Denali - Summit Expedition

West Buttress Route






May - June




At 6194m, Denali is the highest peak in the majestic Alaskan range of North America. Its huge 6000m bulk rises dramatically from the surrounding plains, adding to its Himalayan stature. Due to its very northerly position this is the coldest mountain outside of Antarctica, and so will give rise to the feeling of acclimatising on a 7000m peak.

Climbing on Denali offers excellent experience for those wishing to step up to 8000m peaks in the future. In return for this challenge, the surroundings are spectacular and the terrain typical of what you would expect of Alaska; an ethereal land on the edge of the Arctic Circle. This is an isolated and committing mountain, giving one a sense of real adventure. The expedition is fully guided in conjunction with our authorised Alaskan partners and follows Denali’s West Buttress. This is a popular route, yet still offers a challenging ascent of 40-50 degree snow slopes and an impressive ice headwall. You should be confident on Scottish II snow and ice with experience of crevasse rescue. It is important to book early on these expeditions, normally at least six months in advance. No Sherpa or porter support is available on these trips. Success is therefore dependent on expedition members having a good level of fitness and the ability to carry reasonable loads each day on the mountain.
