Pearlman's Jewelers to scale a unique new height

07
May '08
Paul Elwell, CFO of Pearlman's Jewelers, will take the Pearlman's flag to new heights as he attempts to climb Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in North America.

"Mount McKinley is a severe challenge even to the most experienced and able climbers," says Elwell, aged 26. "I look forward to conquering that challenge, and I'm thrilled that Pearlman's Jewelers is supporting my expedition."

Mount McKinley's native Alaskan name is Denali, or "The High One," and it is well-given; the mountain is all of 20,320 feet tall.

Around 1,000 people try to scale the peak every year, and less than half succeed. Temperatures range from -20 F to 80 F, and climbers can encounter falling rock, icefalls, avalanches, and perhaps even sunburn and frostbite on the same day.

Further, the low pressure near the Arctic Circle makes 14,000 feet on Denali feel like 17,000 feet in southern mountains, so climbers have a difficult time processing oxygen. The first ascent was made in 1913, while the first through the normal West Buttress route was made in 1951.

Elwell's expedition, which will also follow the West Buttress route, begins on May 10, stretching until June 5, 2008. He is an experienced climber, having gone mountaineering extensively in the Cascades in Colorado and in the ranges of Alaska.

His goal is to scale the seven summits – the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Elwell will post real-time updates and photos on his own web site, as well as on the Pearlman's Jewelers web site.
