IMG Denali West Buttress Expedition

IMG Denali 2021-2022

IMG Denali's guides and expeditions are fully booked for the upcoming 2021 season. If you would like to be wait listed for 2021 (in case of a cancellation) or discuss joining one of our 2022 Denali expeditions, please contact IMG Denali.

After a 2020 season of no climbing, IMG Denali, LLC (IMGD) is looking forward to getting back to The Great One in 2021!

We are currently organizing seven trips via the West Buttress Route. International Mountain Guides, LLC is the exclusive booking agent for IMGD. Lace up your boots and pack your duffels because it's time to head up north. At 20,310', Denali is simply the tallest mountain in North America and one of the most coveted of the fabled Seven Summits.

IMG Denali's owners were some of the first to guide on Denali back in the 1970's and have 57 successful ascents of Denali between them. Our Denali guides are top notch and share our IMG company culture from Mt. Rainier of safety, summits, and great customer service. All IMG Denali expeditions will be structured at a 2:1 client to guide ratio. Our 3-week SCHEDULED expedition is limited to 8 climbers led by 4 guides. For private teams of one or more climbers, IMG Denali can also design CUSTOM expeditions. Please contact us for more information about this custom expedition option.

With only a few expeditions scheduled for the 2021 climbing season, you can be assured that you won't be just another number among many. We are available for personal contact throughout the planning stages of your expedition. We have based IMG Denali on the philosophy that a personal touch and attention to detail is very important in creating a successful expedition, especially one as serious as Denali, and that is what you'll receive.

Anyone considering Denali is concerned about risk. IMG's record in the mountains is among the best in the business, and our guides are world class. We pride ourselves on our reputation for success in the mountains, but even more so for our ability to manage risk for our customers over thirty plus years of operation on many hundreds of adventures spanning all seven continents. Our main priority is helping you to achieve the adventure of a lifetime and then returning you back home at the end of the expedition safely.


We had climbed roped, simultaneously, front-pointing forever into a revived storm and relentless wind. Everything was cold, even our souls. Frostbite was waiting to jump at the slightest sign of weakness, but both of us played our own winning game with it. McKinley's climate is tough. We were drawing heavily on all our Himalayan experience just to survive, and it was a respectful pair that finally stood on the summit ridge...
