Redmond Nintendo-Siras exec heading up Mt. McKinley

While most of us are gripping beers around the barbecue this weekend, the chief executive of Nintendo subsidiary Siras will be clinging to a rope on the side of Mt. McKinley in Alaska.

Peter Junger’s a hardcore mountaineer well on his way to climbing the highest mountains all 50 states and McKinley’s one of the last hard ones on his list.

Redmond-based Siras offers technology that companies use to “fingerprint” merchandise to reduce fraudulent returns and verify warranty eligiblity.

The company’s Web site has a link to follow Junger’s progress – he’s using a GPS device from Spot Adventures that displays his progress on a Google map.

UPDATE: Junger and his climbing team made it to the summit yesterday just after 6 p.m.
