Mount McKinley Climbing Notes
Bryan Rogers from UNITED STATES writes:
Dave you will almost certainly die from an accident or altitude sickness if you attempt Denali in one day. It has been done, but by renowned mountaineers with special physical abilities who've trained their entire lives. The air at the summit is almost as thin as it is at the summit of Everest. Add that to the fact that Everest is 11,500 feet from base to summit while Denali is 15,000 base to summit.
