The 11th of January Lonnie Dupre from Minnesota completes a humongous achievement when he summits Denali (Mount McKinley) solo at winter. Only nine attempts have been made prior – but no-one solo in January.

This was Dupres’ fourth try and he spent roughly a month on the mountain in winds up to 100 km/h (62 mi/h) and in temperatures down to minus 60. Denali at 6 168 masl is the highest mountain in North America and as such one of The Seven Summits.
