Thanks to Caglow for adding this peak.

Kings Peak is the 4th highest peak in Canada. It is a sharply defined peak shaped like a pointed pyramid. Mount Logan should be visible easily on clear days to the southeast. The climb becomes very technical near the end where ropes and rock face climbing equipment are required. A climbing permit is required from Kluane National Park.

Thanks to Caglow for this description.
