July 4, U.S. Independence Day, eight members of our expedition climbed the highest peak in North America, Mount McKinley. Weather conditions were extremely unfavorable: blizzard, cold. In this regard, Anatoly Yezhov refused to climb, and Nadejda Voskresenskaya returned from half way to the camp. Others worked hardly and reached  the highest point of the mountain, and now rest before going down.

 Thanks to AAI guides !
