Hey everyone! Me and a friend of mine have a goal to one day climb Mt. McKinley not only for the experience, but the bragging rights that come with it! We were wondering what are some prerequisites needed before you can even attempt this climb, like classes. Also how much would it cost us and how long would it take? We don't want to do it with those big groups of climbers that go with guides. We want to do it on our own so we can take a picture of us at the summit with a big old middle finger and send it to all of our friends that say we will never do it. So how much would we be looking and for classes, gear, expenses, etc. and how long are the classes and even the climb in itself. And even share what your experience was if you have already conquered this feat.
