Upon his journey, he found the altitude to be more than challenging. His oxygen intake began decreasing substancially and he could feel himself fading away.
Krakauer describes his attempts at climbing the Devil’s Thumb when he was 23 years old and compares it to McCandless. The credibility it provides is the insight and thoughts that McCandless might have had on his odyssey as a young man finishing his own greatest achievement. To Krakauer, “the Devil’s Thumb was the same as medical school, only different” (Krakauer 150). To McCandless, it is likely his adventure in Alaska was the fulfillment he needed after following his parents’ wish of finishing college. Both Krakauer and McCandless had problems with their father’s falsehood and losing the innocence that they once had.

The poem explores the challenge of climbing a mountain literally, as well as overcoming strife figuratively through the depiction of a victorious conquest, the feeling of being on top of the world. The speaker’s sense of accomplishment at the end of his challenge, although only momentary, is worth the strenuous journey to the top.
