Beast. There is no other word for this mountain. At 5959m, Mt. Logan is Canada’s highest mountain, second only to Denali in North America.
Vincent Larochelle and partner Alison Criscitiello spent two weeks going up that mountain, trudging and carrying over a hundred of pounds of food, fuel and gear up ice falls and crevasse fields, waiting out storms that dropped meters of snow at a time, and persevering through temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius.
“Going up the King’s Trench Route, we sometimes conjectured on how many jumbo jets could fit in some of the crevasses we saw,” said Vincent. “50 – I remember thinking to myself as I skied across a sagging snow bridge. We had the whole mountain to ourselves, an incredible but terrifying thought. Then, something incredible happened…. the crackle of a voice on my BC Link radio.”
