Marty Raney from "Ultimate Survival Alaska" stars in the National Geographic Channel reality docu-series.

Marty Raney hasn't always lived in Alaska but doesn't have much to say about the time he spent in the lower 48. "Inconsequential," he says. Ask Marty what he does for a living and he'll tell you his business card says, "log builder, stone mason, explorer ... " and he's got the rough hands to prove it.

That business card also says, "mountain guide," another title he's certainly earned. Marty has led 17 trips up Denali, the highest peak in North America, with people who never thought that they would ever be able to achieve such a thing. It's Marty's job to make sure they do. Sadly, he's also seen McKinley claim a friend who pushed himself too hard. There is no question that Marty knows the best and worst of what the Alaskan wilderness has to offer.
