Jim Tabor on America’s worst mountaineering disaster

In the summer of 1967, 24-year-old Joe Wilcox led an expedition of 12 explorers to the summit of Alaska’s Mount McKinley, now known as Denali. A storm hit, and only five men returned. The tragedy remains America’s worst mountaineering disaster. What happened? Jim Tabor‘s new book Forever On the Mountain tries to provide a full and final answer, and he made a recent appearance on WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” to talk with Coy Barefoot.
