Mount Logan is the highest peak in Canada and the second highest peak in North America. Height aside, Logan is one of the most massive mountains in the world. Its many cliff faces, well over 10,000 feet, rise to an immense ten-mile summit crest of high peaks and saddles. The summit crest spills giant heavily crevassed glaciers for miles over the surrounding valleys.
