International Alpine Solidarity Award

International Alpine Solidarity Award. AAC Member Daryl Miller was presented with the Silver Plaque of the International Alpine Solidarity Award by the guides of Pinzolo, Italy. This award honored Miller for rescues performed during his work as a Denali National Park mountaineering ranger on Mt. McKinley. The soft-spoken Miller accepted the award on behalf of all the rangers and other rescue workers involved in McKinley rescues. Miller works as team member and commonly as coordinator on the National Park Service patrols, where he makes the tough decisions affecting the safety of both victims and rescue crews. He is well-respected by climbers, guides, and the various officials involved in mountain activities. In typical fashion, Miller gives credit to all members of the rescue crews who work in extreme conditions to protect the safety of all parties on the mountain.
