Denali

Featured Athletes: Pete McAfee, Vasu Sojitra

Vasu Sojitra and Pete McAfee made history in June 2021, completing the first (known) disabled ski descent of Denali. Both amputees, the two mountaineers teamed up with a six man team to tackle the highest peak in North America. The expedition was riddled with challenges, including a thin snowpack and difficult weather, but ultimately during a short window of calm conditions, the team pushed through to summit the 20,310 foot peak, overcoming countless barriers to make history. Their story is one of grit and determination, showcasing what inclusivity and representation of Disabled people can look like in even the most extreme outdoor places.
