Emilie Cortes and John Gray, aka Team X Whisperers, formed a 2 person team to face the Upper West Rib of Denali (aka Mt McKinley) in June 2009. It was John’s fourth time on Denali and Emilie’s first time ever to Alaska. What was it like to suffer day after day uphill in temperatures that vacillated from subzero to boiling with a heavy pack and sled? Did all the logistical planning pay off or did they miss something critical?

We'll head out of South Lake and camp at Treasure Lakes on Saturday. Sunday we start at first light and take the class 3 variation up Gilbert which bypasses Treasure Col, the traditional route. Instead, we cross the Sierra Crest further north and pick up the southeast slope from there. Ice axes will not be needed. Participants must be comfortable on class 3 terrain and must contact the leaders to be signed up and tell them about their recent class-3 and mountain climbing experience. Permit is for 6 participants including the leaders.
