The National Park Service is searching for a solo climber on Denali after he failed to check in with a friend by satellite phone for several days.
The same weather that kept the stranded group on the glacier kept rescuers off it. Fortunately, the Sheldon Chalet was just a few miles away.
Last year’s climbing season was canceled due to COVID-19. Now climbing is returning, along with its boost to businesses in the Northern Susitna Valley.
Last Thursday, an employee at Denali National Park made a disturbing discovery while driving to the site of the landslide on the Park Road.
