Friends Shad Burnham and Brian Waters climb Cassin Ridge
A couple of friends of mine, Shad Burnham and Brian Waters, summited Denali last week via the Cassin Ridge. I don't know all the details yet, but I have been told it took them four days due to high winds and stormy weather. Shad's been a good climbing partner of mine for years. This year he and Brian have been getting after it, climbing many fun and difficult routes in the Tetons over the winter, with the goal of getting up the Cassin Ridge on Denali. Well done, guys! Shad is the owner of the Pro Shop at The Front climbing gym. If you're ever in Ogden, stop by and check out his shop and the gym.
