AMC October Meeting & Program: Denali, Kurt Gusinde; Visitors Welcome

 

Kurt Gusinde and his “Summit Dream”

Denali (Mt. McKinley): Mountain of Extremes

Mountain climber and adventurer, Kurt Gusinde shares video and slides from his expedition to the highest peak in North America – Denali, at a height of 20,320 feet.

From top to bottom, Denali rises nearly 18,000 feet – an elevation gain unsurpassed anywhere in the world.

Denali is a mountain of extreme conditions: 100 mph winds and -40 degree temperatures or quite hot with sunshine lasting up to 20 hours a day.

For over 25 years, Kurt has climbed numerous North American peaks as well as several of the highest peaks around the world.

His “Summit Dream” is to continue to climb the highest peak on each continent and complete his goal of climbing the 16 major glaciated peaks in the Northwest.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
