From Friday 20th May until Monday 13th June a friend of UOG was on a trip to climb the West Buttress route on Denali (or Mt. McKinley), with its summit at 6194 meter or 20327 feet, in Alaska, USA. This is the trip report by Sieto van der Heide, an amateur mountaineer and aspiring ultralight backpacker from the Netherlands. The trip was a success when on monday 6th June Sieto and his team, summited Denali (6194m / 20.327ft) via the West Buttress. Below is a picture of Sieto at base camp.
