Hi, i'm wanting to gain altitude experience thus Nov or Dec prior to climbing Denali. Does anyone recommend anywhere, such as kilimanjaro or..?

Thanks you
Steve

In reply to stevetaylor20: When are you planning to climb Denali? In my experience, acclimatisation doesn't last that long once you are back at sea level.

I'd have thought the Alps would be pretty good training. High and more importantly freezing cold!

In reply to EeeByGum: hi, Denali next year, I could do any month next year, May, June. - which is why i was thinking of doing something this year prior to gain more experience. From what I gather after speaking with various people, the west buttress route is relatively simple route and basic mountaineering skills needed prior, but the ability to learn quickly and be very fit, as well as experience on cold weather conditions.

I've not had seriously high altitude experience so I thought I should have that...or not?!

Thanks
Steve
