2013 Denali Season Ends

The final statistics of the 2013 Climbing season. AMS contributed to the high summit success rate on both peaks!

Of the 12 registered on Foraker only 6 made the top led by AMS guides Melis Coady and Josh Hoeschen.

Below are the final 2013 registration statistics and reported summit rates for all climbers from the National Park Service:

Despite our big expeditions being over we still have courses and workshops through September. Oddly enough the guides that are around all have the day off. They are sorting through their gear, surfing the net and eating a lot of food.

AMS guide Kevin Smith just rolled in from Kavik, Alaska where he was a safety/logistics person on a film shoot with National Geographic, Life Below Zero.
