Wikipedia Link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denali

 

Why - Highly motivated to accomplish something very few people will ever be able to do.  I believe someone who can climb Denali successfully can probably climb Everest.

 

How - Need a good bit of training, experience, gear and funds

 

Comment - Denali is not on my bucket list. I should have done it 40+ years ago, if ever.
