Route: Moscow – Anchorage – Talkeetna – l. Kahiltna – the top of Mount McKinley (Denali) – descent along the ascent route.

Information: Seven Summits project. Expeditions and Travel Club 7 Summits. Climbing on the classic route (West Battres – West Buttress). Note: “7 Summits Club” – the only Russian company, which has a formal right to organize commercial expeditions on Mount McKinley. We work with one of the 6 licensed US companies have the exclusive right to provide guide services on McKinley! This program we organize our representative from the club 1 time per year. Climbing on Mount McKinley – the highest peak in North America – is sometimes compared with the ascent Everest in complexity. It’s really hard and cold: tents among the deserted expanses of snow, glaciers with a lot of cracks, temperatures up to – 25-35 degrees. In general, it is necessary to think well before you go to such an adventure. The proposed route – this is a classic route of ascent to the summit of McKinley (or Denali, which is a place of language Aleut means “high” or “great”) – on the West Buttress (West Buttress).

The main part of the road passes through the “closed” glacier (the glacier, the surface of which is covered with snow, ice cracks are not visible). All this snow and ice route does not pose any major technical difficulties, although the slope of the individual sections can be up to 40-45 degrees. These sites provesheny railing. The route (total length about 30 km) goes through the glacier Kahiltna camp 2400m, 3000m, 3300m. It is about 15km snowshoe, dragging a sledge loaded with. Then snegostupyostavlyayut (usually Eleven camp at 3300m) and in cats sovershaeyut sufficiently long transition through the “Windy Corner”, a height of 4330m. This Advanced Base Camp (Camp or Rangers). Next go to the assault camp in 5200, and from here, through the “Pass Denali” ascent to the summit. The route is complicated by very low temperatures (a problem even go to the bathroom) and the abundance of larger cracks.
