    • found: Columbia gazetteer online, Aug. 31, 2015:(McKinley, Mount or Denali (=the great one), mountain (20,320 ft/6,194 m), S central Alaska, in the Alaska Range; 63°04ʹN 151°00ʹW. Highest point in North America. McKinley features two main peaks: the higher is South Peak (20,320 ft/6,194 m) and North Peak (19,470 ft/5,934 m); the two together have sometimes been known as the Churchhill Peaks. Other notable peaks on the mountain are South Buttress (15,885 ft/4,842 m), East Buttress (14,730 ft/4,490 m), and Browne Tower (14,530 ft/4,429m). Permanent snowfields cover more than half the mountain and feed numerous glaciers. Mount McKinley was first scaled successfully by the American explorer Hudson Stuck in 1913. It is included in Denali National Park and Preserve.)
