    1. Loved it Great short stories of the historic and present day adventures to the summit of Denali It s current up to 2012, so it also addresses the guided groups and the difficulties of trash maintenance Inspiring and full o details and statistics Even if you re not a mountaineer, which I am not, you will find this a great read if you are interested in the challenges and rewards of mountain climbing.

    2. Bill Sherwonit s To the Top of Denali is the classic introduction to the history and general information about climbing to the highest point in North America This is the 3rd edition of the book, released in 2012 with updates on the rules and regulations for being on the mountain, as well as the logistics of modern day expeditions, most of which are done through vetted guide services However, the accounts of the most significant climbs of Denali, including the key first ascents, remain as grippin [...]

    3. I was a bit skeptical of a book that was just stories about one mountain, but the author did a great job of combining deep research with interesting yarns Some of the stories here are mountaineering classics and although I had read about them elsewhere, they were told very well here There are also other stories that I have never heard before, but were compelling and interesting and valuable for telling the story of the mountain The book was also valuable to me in that it led me to rethink Denali [...]

    4. Incredible And scary too Bill does an amazing job of recounting extraordinary stories of brave souls who dared to climb this mountain I love the vivid details and in depth history too I went to Delani recently and I really appreciate it even after reading this awesome book Highly recommend this especially if you like to read about unbelievable adventures from the comfort of your couch while sipping some hot chocolate instead of going to the Mountains in the snow I promise this book will lift yo [...]

    5. I was curious about what expeditions up Denali are like after visiting Alaska this past summer This was a good book that contains lots of stories and summaries of a variety of trips, from the early 1900s to the last 15 years.

    6. I love mountaineering For a variety of reasons, I read about it now than actually go My palms still sweat though
