Reporting Points and Maps
The mountain is divided into two geographic areas, north and south. The dividing line is delineated from the east by the south side of the Eldridge Glacier, up to the main ridge of the Alaska Range, which extends up to the summit of Mount McKinley and westward to the summits of Mount Foraker and Mount Russell. There are two CTAFs used on the mountain. The south side traffic should monitor and report on 123.65, and the north side on 122.725.
Aircraft density around Mount McKinley can be quite high during the summer months. Air tour operators fly out of Anchorage, Talkeetna, Fairbanks, and the McKinley Park areas. For position reporting, this mountain environment has been divided into two "zones," one north and the other south of the crest of the Alaska Range.
