What do you know about Denali? You haven't been up there in days!

Winter Presi Traverse. (Disclaimer: I have not been out with Chauvin, but he's got an excellent rep, and his presi traverse pages are useful whether or not you go guided.)

Take a look at this SP trip report for Denali.

Hey j83soldier: Any interest in the Denali books mentioned above? I think they'd be a great starting point, guided climb or not. Good resources gathering dust on our bookshelves but I think I speak for the group in that we don't want to send you stuff you have no interest in. Let us know,
-Tom
