Denali Trip Report (#5428)

GREAT CLIMB. be ready for some major bruising from the heavy gear (shoulders from the pack, hips from the sled). I lost a toe nail on the way down. Make sure you check the fit of your boots on down-sloping terrain before you leave or you'll regret it for months after until your nail grows back. It is the most beautiful climb I have ever done. Considering doing it again by a different route. (took West Buttress Route this time). And at the end of the climb, after the football fields... be ready for PIG HILL. that thing is a BITCH!!!!
