Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,310 feet (6190 m) above sea level. It is the third most prominent and third most isolated peak on Earth, after Mount Everest and Aconcagua.Denali has two significant summits: the South Summit is the higher one, while the North Summit has an elevation of 5934m and a prominence of approximately 387.The North Summit is sometimes counted as a separate peak and sometimes not, it is rarely climbed, except by those doing routes on the north side of the massif. The first climbing attempt was made by the Sourdough Expedition (William Taylor and Pete Anderson) utilizing the Muldrow Glacier. They summited the north peak (19,740’) in 1910. About three years later, in 1913, a team comprised of Archdeacon Hudson Stuck, Robert Tatum, Walter Harper, and Harry Karstens successfully climbed the south peak, reaching the true summit. It was Harper, a native Athabascan, who first stood atop North America. Between 1913 and 1950, there were very few ascents of Denali. The landmark achievement, which opened Denali to a larger group of climbers, was Bradford Washburn’s 1951 expedition, which reached the summit of Denali via the West Buttress. Washburn’s team, using a plane fitted with skis to access the Kahiltna Glacier, pioneered the most popular route on the mountain.
