Experience Denali with Legendary Alpinists at Alaska’s Sheldon Chalet

Pelorus has collaborated with Sheldon Chalet and famed mountaineers Renan Ozturk and Freddie Wilkinson to design a completely unique and utterly unforgettable experience in Denali National Park, Alaska. 

For mountaineering enthusiasts, Sheldon Chalet is the kind of destination that you will have only ever dreamed of. Perched 5,818 feet high on a nunatak in the heart of Denali National Park and accessible only by helicopter, Sheldon Chalet is surrounded by impeccable Alaskan wilderness – only ten miles from the summit of Denali. Who says luxury can’t come to the mountains?

Mountaineering enthusiasts will be able to follow in the footsteps—quite literally—of legendary climbers Renan Ozturk and Freddie Wilkinson, in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure based at Sheldon Chalet.

Climbing by Renan Ozturk

Wilkinson’s infectious energy and original sense of adventure has taken him on first ascents and epic climbs in Alaska, Nepal, India, Patagonia, and Antarctica, as well as a successful career writing for the National Geographic Magazine and the New York Times. Ozturk began his career as a landscape artist, and he also works as a photojournalist for National Geographic having previously been awarded National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2013. We had the chance to speak to Ozturk about his experiences so far.

Inspired by Bradford Washburn, explorer, mountaineer, photographer, and pioneering cartographer who set out in the Denali National Park over 80 years ago, The Sanctity of Space is a brand-new feature film which debuts 13 May, following Ozturk and Wilkinson as they attempt the first lateral ascent across some of Denali’s most challenging peaks, including the Moose’s Tooth. This is an epic tale of courage, perseverance, and ambition, and Ozturk and Wilkinson make a legendary pairing.

Experience Denali for yourself

In collaboration with Pelorus and inspired by the The Sanctity of Space, you can have the exclusive opportunity to join Ozturk and Wilkinson in Denali. Beginning at the Moose’s Tooth, this 5-day experience will extend to guided glacier exploration, backcountry skiing and rappelling into jaw-dropping ice caverns. Guests will have the opportunity for a photography masterclass with Ozturk, as well as an exclusive screening of The Sanctity of Space at Sheldon Chalet alongside the film’s directors and stars.
