Bangor University Denali Expedition

These two young students hoped to climb a new line on Father & Son Wall of Denali (6194m) in a single push. Unfortunately, they timed their visit rather late in the season, by which time much of the snow had melted, leaving the face in a dangerous condition. This and the intimidating scale prompted the duo to seek alternative routes. They eventually made successful ascents of the SW Ridge of Mount Francis (2610m), Bacon and Eggs (an ice gully) on the Moonflower Buttress of Mount Hunter (4444m) and a two day ascent of Denali’s Cassin Ridge – one of only four ascents in the season.
