Description

Join me on this demanding adventure as we explore Canada’s highest peak, and North America’s second highest summit, Mount Logan, which soars to 5,959 meters.

Located in the UNESCO-listed Kluane National Park of the Yukon territory, lying close to the Alaskan border, Mount Logan hosts an impressive amount of peaks.

This will be an epic splitboarding expedition along the St. Elias mountain range. Following the King’s Trench route, this adventurous path is isolated from the other more common routes.

The King’s Trench route is similar to the one taken to the peak of Alaska’s mythical Denali mountain. Unlike the Denali, the route on Mount Logan has no steep climbing or nor needs any fixed ropes, making it an easier climb to ascend.

Our expedition begins in Whitehorse, Yukon. After a 1-hour flight we reach our base at the King’s Trench route (2,800 meters). Looking outside the plane window, take in the breathtaking vistas of the range, a glimpse of what is to come.

After setting up camp at the Quintino Sella glacier, we will ascend on splitboards over the next 5-6 days towards the Advanced Base Camp, sitting at 4,000 meters. This camp is located at the pass of King Peak and the Logan massif.

After a day’s rest we continue the ascent to our next camp that rests at 5,500 meters. Here is our base for our summit attempt.

Because of the importance of acclimatising at high altitudes, it is necessary to have moderate altitude differences between camps.

From the peak of Mount Logan, the ceiling of Canada, we descend for an exhilarating 2 days, carving out board trails into the untracked snow.

Because of the demanding nature of the 23-day expedition, potential participants must have an excellent physical condition. In addition, it is necessary to have experience splitboarding, backpacking and multi-day climbing. The expedition involves travelling on glacier, which requires using ropes. However, previous experience is not needed.

Reserve your place among the majestic heights of North America and experience a once in a lifetime splitboarding expedition to Canada’s Mount Logan.
