The white-knuckle account of one of the most deadly climbing disasters of all time.
In 1967, twelve young men attempted to climb Alaska's Mount McKinley--known to the locals as Denali--one of the most popular and deadly mountaineering destinations in the world. Only five survived.
Hal investigates the tragedy. He spent years tracking down survivors, lost documents, and recordings of radio communications. In Denali's Howl, Hall reveals the full story of an expedition facing conditions conclusively established here for the first time. As well as the story of the men caught inside the storm, Denali's Howl is the story of those caught outside it trying to save them--Hall's father among them.
