Mt McKinley (Denali)

Situated in Alaska's Denali National Park, Denali has the highest vertical gain out all the Seven Summit Mountains. Michael Down and I shared the summit together on an extremely cold and windy day. It was Michael's final mountain on his Seven Summit Quest, and it was an honor to share it with him. Certainly one of my most enjoyable expeditions, a deep memory remains.
