In what would have been one of the more impressive feats in arctic mountaineering, Lonnie Dupre has abandoned his January solo attempt to summit Alaska’s Denali, North America’s highest peak.
He’d been on the mountain for 19 days and was looking at enduring 50 mph winds and -50F temperatures. According to a post on his website, it was -35F inside the snow cave where he’d taken shelter.
Had he succeeded, Dupre would have been the first person to summit Denali solo in the month of January.
