ANCHORAGE – A Minnesota man made history when he reached North America’s tallest peak Sunday afternoon.

Lonnie Dupre, 53, is believed to have reached the Denali summit around 2 p.m., based on a beacon sent to his team from 20,000 feet. Dupre set out on his journey in mid-December in hopes of becoming the first man to climb the mountain alone in January.

According to Stevie Plummer, Dupre’s spokesperson, Dupre has attempted this endeavor four times.
