The main camp at 14300ft. Denali, Alaska (color) Sunset over Brouillard ridge, just under the summit of Mont-Blanc, Italy. (color) The next day, I would cross the gully and climb the ridge. Denali, Alaska (color) The West Buttress route goes behind the ridge above the Kahilna pass. Totally invisible from the land, it has been discovered in the 50s by Bradford Washburn thanks to his large format aerial photographic surveys. This discovery would revolutionize Mt Mc Kinley climbing. Denali, Alaska (color) East Face of Mont-Blanc and Peuterey ridge, Italy. (color) Above the 11000 camp, the route becomes steeper, making sleding or sking unpractical. Denali, Alaska (color) Windy Corner. There is a secondary summit which creates a funnel with the West Buttress, generating incredibly high winds there during storms.. Denali, Alaska (color) Yes, it all goes into a Lowe Cerro Torre II. Denali, Alaska (color) On the West Rib. Denali, Alaska (color) The route so far (outlined in red): the Kahilna glacier in front of Mt Foraker, Windy Corner, and the camp 14300 which is nested in a snow bowl. Denali, Alaska (color) Time to repack my summit gear. Denali, Alaska (color) Last technical steps on the West Rib route. Denali, Alaska (color)
