Review:

Denali's West Buttress is a valuable resource for every first-time Denali-bound climber. The sections on mountain weather, women's concerns, and a complete step-by-step route description are the first to be discussed in such a thorough fashion. (Roger Robinson, Ranger, Denali National Park)

The essential guide to Mount McKinley's most popular route... detail and clarity that rival any climbing guide in the world. (The Leader (National Outdoor Leadership School))
