Denali Climbing Difficulties

Climbing Denali might be less difficult than climbing mountains like K2 and Nanga Parbat. However, it should never be underestimated.

The climb to Denali requires good technical climbing training and expert training in using mountaineering gears like crampons and ice-ax. The climbers should also be well trained to deal with the extreme conditions of the mountains like avoiding avalanches, besides the usual altitude sickness.

Denali is the coldest mountain among all other mountains, where there are long winters with the temperature reaching up to -30 degrees. There is also the constant strong wind blowing through the mountain.

This not only gives rise to cases like hypothermia but also increases the chances of avalanches. One needs to be ready and well adjusted to the extreme arctic conditions before attempting to reach its summit.
