IMG Denali West Buttress Expedition

IMG Denali, LLC is the newest Denali guide service. We were awarded a ten-year concession contract by Denali National Park and Preserve in July of 2018, and we had a good first season on Denali in 2019. Looking ahead to the 2020 season, IMGD will be organizing seven trips on The Great One 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 and guides have been climbing Denali since the early 1970's. In fact, they were some of the first to guide on Denali and have 57 successful ascents of Denali between themselves. That's an experience base which is hard to match. All IMG Denali expeditions will be structured at a 2:1 client to guide ratio. Our 3-week expedition is limited to 8 climbers led by 4 guides resulting in a more personal experience with your 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 2020 climbing season, you can be assured that you won't be just another number among many. Constant, personal contact throughout the planning stages will be yet another reason to climb with IMG Denali. We have based IMG Denali on the philosophy that 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.


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...
