Assessing Denali, 'The Great One'

Steven Decker, a training specialist and Army Staff Sgt. Brian Bailey an instructor both assigned to the U.S. Army Alaska Northern Warfare Training Center carefully survey the route they will take before confirming it as a safe path and setting out. Grooming standards, such as shaving are temporarily suspended as a clean shaven face is much more susceptible to damage from frostbite and other extreme conditions that they will face on Mount McKinley.
