IMG Denali West Buttress Expedition

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. For 2022, IMG Denali will conduct eight Scheduled Programs via the West Buttress Route. In addition, we offer Custom programs for private teams of one or more climbers.

IMG Denali's owners were some of the first to guide on Denali back in the 1970's, and our current Denali guides share our thirty-five years of IMG company culture for safety, summits, and great customer service. All IMG Denali expeditions will be structured at a 2:1 client to guide ratio with a maximum of 8 climbers led by 4 guides. This 2:1 ratio provides our teams with additional flexibility and a higher level of support.

With only eight expeditions scheduled for the 2022 climbing season, you can be assured that you won't be just another number among many. We are available for personal consultation 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 should be concerned about risk, and IMG's record in the mountains is among the best in the business. We pride ourselves on our reputation for success, but even more so for our track record of managing risk for our customers on many thousands of adventures spanning all seven continents over the past three plus decades. 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...
