Vets abandon Mt. McKinley climb

After reaching 15,500 feet, severe weather caused five wounded vets, including four amputees, to abandon the climb. It was the first all-wounded vet team with four amputees to attempt to climb Denali.

Check out our prior interview with the mountaineering team in advance of the climb: https://newsroom.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/10/the-denali-challenge/.
