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.
