Annual Mountaineering Summaries
Each year, the staff at the Talkeetna Ranger Station compiles a summary of mountaineering activities in Denali National Park and Preserve. The 2012 Annual Mountaineering Summary is available now, and includes our yearly rescue and medical summaries, a statistical review, a rundown of notable ascents, and other articles about our mountaineering program and the people who help make it all happen.
Below are links to the summaries dating back to 1979.

Did You Know?
Visibility is an important component of measuring Denali's air quality. Visibility data, such as that from the Wonder Lake camera, supplements chemical data from filter samples. Air here is still clean, but traces of pollution from local, regional and international sources exists on filter samples.
