2018 Denali West Buttress - looking for partners

I'm looking to do Denali's West Buttress in May 2018. I have a partner lined up, but would prefer to have a team of 3 or 4. Last year my partner bailed (family), and this year I injured my wrist skiing (ok...I also scored a permit to raft the Grand Canyon!). Next year will be a charm! I'm thinking mid May-ish, but I'm flexible. I've climbed a lot of rock and ice, and I've done Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro and Orizaba, plus a bunch-o 14ers.

I have tentative plans to visit India in February, and was planning my second attempt at Denali in the spring of 2019.  However, my India trip doesn't end up happening, I would be all for a trip back to Alaska.  I'd like to stay in touch and be listed as a possible team member!

Hi, I plan to return to Denali next year after an unsuccessful attempt earlier this year due to poor weather at the 17 camp.  Denali will be the last mountain in the 7 summits.  I wouldn't be able to start before mid June though as I will be on Everest until the start of June. I like to stay in touch as a possible member. Jon

Hi, I am looking to join a small team of serious climbers for Denali in 2018. Skis or snowshoes on the West Buttress. Let me know if you are still looking for partners.

Thanks, V
