the Mount Logan - convenient in the Eliaskette of the southwest Yukon of territory - is with 5.959 m the highest mountain of Canada and after the Mount McKinley (Denali) the second highest summit of North America. The mountain became 1890 discovered and much geologists admitted of 1891 after that Sir William Edmond Logan at that time designated. Meanwhile there is 13 different routes to the summit and its mounting is considered as one of the most difficult North America. Beside the main summit there are three further summits over 5.890 M. Because of inaccessibilityto the mountain (the Erstbesteiger had to overcome 180 km to come over at all to the mountain) most mountain climbers let themselves be set off from a flight service, which in Haines Junction is stationed, on a glacier.
