I'm planning to head to Denali in 2012. I'm looking for advice on a few things:
What dates are best (I know the 2012 Kon is June 8&9). I've heard a start in late May aiming for a summit attempt in early-mid June is a good combination.

Any recommendations on a good guide service?

I've gotten varying advice on how to tackle the mountain. Some have said it's better to plan for as many days at 17 camp as possible, others have said it doesn't matter. Thoughts?
