Mt. McKinley

We can’t call it Denali cuz that’d be cultural appropriation. :)

Denali is the highest mountain peak in the US at 32,210 feet. Although it certainly can’t compete with the Himalayas, it is a very impressive rock – as you can see. Breathtaking.
Denali wasn’t climbed until 1910, since then 32,000 people have attempted the summit with a failure rate of 50%.

Interesting tidbit – the 1910 summit was made possible by a drunken bar bet by Fairbanks gold prospectors. They won.
