Welcome to a 23-day trip to the highest peak in Canada: Mount Logan. This time, I invite you to reach its Eastern Summit, via the East Ridge trail.
Mount Logan is located in the Kluane National Park and Reserve, in Yukon. Yukon is the westernmost area in northern Canada and it’s a really incredible place.
Mount Logan East Ridge has an altitude of 5.959 meters and it is considered probably the best high alpine wall for climb of all North America. During these 23 days we will go progressively gaining altitude and using different fields as base camps to rest and feed. A slow acclimatization is necessary if you want to reach the top.
Moreover, the East Ridge route is very long and has moderate grades of technical climb. On the way, we may find free rocks and very exposed knife edges. As you can see, prior climbing experience is required and also a good physical condition.
When we’ll be close to the last plateau before the summit, we will try to get to the Mount Logan East peak. It is, besides, the most important peak of the mountain. And you can fulfill the objective!
It will be a really enriching experience. Please, feel free to contact me and ask me any doubt you have. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you on the way up to Mount Logan main summit.
A shorter option in Canada could be this expedition to Mt. Joffre. Check it out!
