It doesn't say anything about him being buried there...  ???

Could the body not be retrieved from Denali ,especially on the normal route?

Officials at Denali National Park said he was buried there (probably in the snow)  See the link below.

Hello there.  We were on Denali expedition at the same time as the unfortunate death on the summit (4 days before we summited) and the young man who died near our high camp as we were resting for summit attempt the next day (our guides from AMS went to try to help him while we stayed in our tents).  I have posted the stories on my website http://climbingandrunning.com/ as well as funnier stories about bathrooms and such.  My first such post on 7summits.com and looking forward to being a full member some day (5 down so far) and seven continents (marathons) completed.  Best/Mitch
