Location: Denali National Park, Alaska, USA, North America
A prospector named the tallest mountain in North America "Mount McKinley" in the 1890's but many Alaskans and others prefer the older Athabascan Indian name "Denali", meaning "the High One". Denali's remote, sub-arctic location prevented explorers from reaching its summit until 1913. Today, over 1,000 mountaineers attempt the summit each year thanks to small plane glacier landings and the straight-forward climbing route discovered by Bradford Washburn.
