Descend the climbing route.

Comments • • • • • • • • •

Climb is best done early season to avoid bushwhacking. This is a great route for climbing Logan in a reasonable 3 day trip.

Private climb. This will be a strenuous outing. We are taking the less-travelled Douglas Glacier route which allows for a reasonable 3 day trip to bag this remote summit.
