Mount McKinley (Denali)

Location: Alaska, United States, North America

Lat/Lon: 63.06989°N / 151.073°W

Elevation: 20320 ft / 6194 m

The highest mountain in North America, Mt. McKinley has been the goal of aspiring high altitude climbers since it was first climbed in 1913. Its reputation as a highly coveted summit derives from its location near the Arctic Circle and the Pacific Ocean giving it some of the most ferocious weather in the world. Because of its weather and ease of access, some climbers use McKinley as a training ground for climbing the 8,000 meter peaks of the Himalaya, including Everest.

Mt. McKinley is also known by its Athabascan name Denali meaning "The Great One"
