    Mt. Logan is listed on the Second Seven Summits as it is the second highest peak in North America next to Alaska’s Mt. McKinley/Denali Peak, and it is also on a list of ultras in Canada. The mountain is absolutely massive and mountaineers who thought they saw gigantic mountains in the Himalayas are awed by the size of Logan. Even from a distance it completely fills the skyline.
  • Description Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    It is the highest mountain in Canada and the second highest in Nort. The Logan massif has 11 peaks over 5,000 metres, rises about 3000 m from the surrounding glaciers and has the largest base circumference of any mountain in the world. The top of massif covered with a glaciated plateau, about 20 km long and 5 km wide. Numerous ridges, some of them unclimbed, lead up to the plateau from all directions. About a dozen peaks rise from the plateau - the highest is Mount Logan's main summit.  Due to its proximity to the Gulf of Alaska, severe snow storms can hit the upper part of the mountain any time of the year.
