Mt. Logan Quick Wrap-Up

MM guide Tino stopped in the office yes­ter­day glow­ing from the incred­i­ble expe­ri­ence he had on Mount Logan. His enthu­si­asm for this new alpine ter­ri­to­ry has him geared up for next year, as he reflects on the suc­cess­ful expedition: 

We had a real­ly great trip! We were stunned by the vast­ness of the Wrangell-St. Elias Range. As we flew out, we looked over an array of peaks that had seen very few peo­ple, if any. Moun­tain Mad­ness is real­ly excit­ed to con­tin­ue to explore the range with future trips, whether it be climb­ing or ski­ing. We had an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence on the King Trench this year, and we’re look­ing for­ward to tar­get­ing the East Ridge of Logan next year. Check back soon for a more detailed write up with pho­tos of both Mount Logan and oth­er poten­tial objec­tives in the area!”

I want to give my high­est rec­om­men­da­tions to both Joe and Tino. They pre­pared for the trip metic­u­lous­ly and led us with a com­bi­na­tion of pro­fes­sion­al­ism, high­est skill, dead-on deci­sion-mak­ing, and humor. It is said that the over­all suc­cess rate on Logan is actu­al­ly quite low — with a lit­tle help from the weath­er gods, it is no sur­prise that we were able to sum­mit with these two fan­tas­tic guides.

The trip was awe­some! The iso­la­tion, the moun­tain, the scale, every­thing made it feel like I was in Antarc­ti­ca.

The Mount Logan climb was fan­tas­tic! An expe­ri­ence I won’t for­get. Joe and Tino were absolute­ly great in every way. And a great team, too. What a great trip!
