I have been hiking the back country of the Western United States for over twenty years. Most of my trips were focused on flyfishing pristine back country lakes and streams with adventurous family members and friends. More recently, my focus has shifted to pushing myself both physically and mentally towards a much higher goal. In 2007, I set a personal goal to someday stand atop the trophy summit of North America - Denali.

At this time, I hope to join a Denali summit team in the Spring of 2013. -Ken Curtis (December 2008)


Preparing for Denali has been full of great learning opportunities (Equipment, Tactics, how my body acclimatizes, and the required grit), and even a few set-backs. Now I'm happy to say I have been accepted onto a May 2015 expedition with RMI guides. -Ken Curtis (June 2014)

SUMMIT! What a great experience! Poor weather stalled our ascent at both Camp 3 and Camp 4, but summit day was spectacular! (July 2015)
