Mount McKinley First Summit
In this May 9, 2013 photo released by the Alaska Air National Guard, Chief Master Sgt. Paul Barendregt climbs up the prow of the West Buttress on Mount McKinley conducting winter rescue and glacier training in Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Barendregt and four other Alaska Air National Guardsmen with the 212th Rescue Squadron became the first group to reach the 20,320-foot peak of Mount McKinley this year after summiting North America’s tallest mountain.
