The Clean Mountain Can (CMC) project, supported by a $5500 Access Fund grant, has been very successful. Presently, over a hundred climbers have used the cans on the West Buttress and the West Rib of Denali. To date we have had at least ten different nationalities using the cans. The project will continue into early June when the supply will have run out at the 14,200-foot camp. CMCs are human waste containers placed on Denaliís popular routes, thus reducing or eliminating the need for the current high altitude toilet.
