Denali, Alaska

Expedition West Buttress

The West Buttress is the most popular route on Denali. We rate this climb “general mountaineering” because it lacks technical difficulties but you should not allow yourself to be deceived by this. Denali is a difficult mountain by any standard and it does not take much for it to turn an otherwise simple situation into a logistical nightmare. The following itinerary is a general description of how we expect the trip to progress. Please understand that once we begin, existing conditions and the strength of the team will possibly dictate a different schedule.

Right after the fix ropes

Unfortunately we can not organize Denali expedition directly as we do not hold a concession. If a group is interest in this expedition we can recommend a guide service who hold a permit (only five services) or we can work with a provider to lead you.
