Climb Full - Taking Alternates
Mount Logan (WA), Fremont Glacier, M2
August 15-18, 2019
Mount Logan (9,087 feet) is located in the North Cascades National Park. It is not visible from any road and is among the sought after ten non-volcanic peaks over 9,000 feet in Washington state. Mount Logan sits on the Cascade crest with Park and Bridge Creeks flowing East to Lake Chelan, and Thunder Creek flowing west eventually into the Skagit River. It is remote and in the company of nearby Goode Mountain and Storm King Mountain and enjoys North Cascades views of peaks near Boston Glacier as well as the Picket Range. The approach takes two days and consists of about 20 miles of both trail and off-trail travel. The Fremont Glacier route includes glacier travel and an exposed rock ridge of up to fourth class rock.
