Annual Mountaineering Summary: 2020

For the first time in the modern history of the mountaineering program at Denali National Park and Preserve, there were no permits issued for climbing Denali or Mount Foraker due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Annual Mountaineering Summary: 2021

A special thank you to the 22 mountaineering Volunteers-in-Parks (VIP's) who teamed up with Denali rangers to staff the mountain camps in 2021. It was a heavy lift, both literally and figuratively, as the park hosted a signficantly smaller VIP crew overall due to COVID-related precautions.
