At the age of 22, Art Davidson made the first winter ascent of Mount McKinley – it was a huge feat and something that has not been repeated many times. No one had lived on North America’s highest ridges in the winter twilight. With the combination of cold, wind, darkness and altitude, the climb would entail the severest conditions ever encountered by man.; Read more about his expedition and much more in the Mountaineering classic Minus 148°: The First Winter Ascent of Mt. McKinley.
