Recent Weather Conditions and Current Climbing Activity
The 2013 mountaineering season is in full swing. In addition to posting daily registration and summit statistics, we are trying something new this climbing season: to provide a daily (or near daily) upload of the mountaineering ranger's weather observation log and periodic West Buttress route notes as a resource for incoming climbers and/or their families and friends. The uploaded spreadsheet of current weather observations and route conditions might not be pretty to look at, but we hope the information is helpful.

Below are the daily registration statistics and reported summit rates to date.
The Talkeetna Ranger Station registration staff also maintains a 24-hour mountaineering statistics line at (907)733-9127. During the spring season, the voice recording is updated daily with the number of registered climbers, the number of climbers currently on the mountain, and the total recorded summits for both Mt. McKinley and Mt. Foraker.
Other Mountaineering Statistics
For season-by-season mountaineering statistics such as summit attempts by route, nationalities, average age, percentage of women climbers, busiest summit days, and other interesting data, go to our Annual Mountaineering Summaries.
