Alaska, You’ve Got a Hold On Us: Part 2

Lyudmila continues her story. Ivan took apart the burner. We blew on it, rubbed it… we tried everything. The pump just wasn’t working. We thought that something might be jammed in it. Time flew by. We didn’t have an ounce of water left – we drank it all on the long and exhausting climb up. Max tried to approach the situation with a clear ...

We quickly got ourselves ready, but none of us really wanted to go. It was cold – probably 25 degrees below 0, maybe even 30. The cold didn’t let up either, even when the sun was out. We got ...

I wanted to share some of my experiences with you. For me, the most emotional day of the expedition had to be June 25th. We had just spent the past two days imprisoned in camp at 3,000 meters, ...

8 Hours on Our Hands and Knees

This is Ivan Dusharin from Team Alpari. We’re currently working on Mount McKinley. I wanted to describe one of our most difficult days of climbing, where we had to make it from 3,200 meters to 4,200 meters – a whole kilometer vertically. We were expecting snow today, so we were pretty excited when we woke up and didn’t see any. Then we started ...

Team Alpari – They’re Tough as Nails!

On June 29th, as we were about to attempt the summit, we realized that we had only spent 7 nights on the mountain. That’s a pretty short amount of time considering that it takes most climbers 16-18 days to make the summit. Most expeditions spend a lot of their time getting used to the altitude, but team Alpari didn’t have the luxury of even a couple ...
