Annual Mountaineering Summaries

Each year, the staff at the Walter Harper Talkeetna Ranger Station compiles a summary of mountaineering activities in Denali National Park and Preserve.

New in 2014, we have shifted from a PDF newsletter-style summary to an easier-to-read HTML web format. The 2014 Annual Mountaineering Summary includes our yearly rescue and medical summaries, a statistical review, and a rundown of notable ascents. For features such as the Mislow-Swanson Denali Pro Award or our Mountaineering Volunteers-In-Parks information, please look to those respective web pages (currently under construction, but coming soon!)

Below are links to the summaries dating back to 1979.

(A current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to download, view and print the PDF files from 1979 to 2013.)
