Denali’s Howl

The Deadliest Climbing Disaster on America’s Wildest Peak


Denali’s Howl is the white-knuckle account of one of themost deadly climbing disasters of all time.

In 1967, twelve young men attempted to climb Alaska’s MountMcKinley—known to the locals as Denali—one of the most popular and deadlymountaineering destinations in the world. Only five survived.

Journalist Andy Hall, son of the park superintendent at thetime, investigates the tragedy. He spent years tracking down survivors, lostdocuments, and recordings of radio communications. In Denali’s Howl,Hall reveals the full story of an expedition facing conditions conclusivelyestablished here for the first time: at an elevation of nearly twenty thousandfeet, these young men endured an “arctic superblizzard,” with howling winds ofup to three hundred miles an hour and wind chill that freezes flesh solid inminutes. All this was without the high-tech gear and equipment climbers use today.

As well as the story of the men caught inside the storm, Denali’sHowl is the story of those caught outside it trying to save them—Hall’sfather among them. The book gives readers a detailed look at the culture ofclimbing then and now and raises uncomfortable questions about each player inthis tragedy. Was enough done to rescue the climbers, or were their fatessealed when they ascended into the path of this unprecedented storm?
