Motint Logan and Cascade Peak. George Denton and Peter Lev reached the summit of Mount Logan on June 20 as members of a team conducting high altitude studies of snow statigraphy in behalf of the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. They followed the original route made in 1925. With Monty Alford, Denton made on May 24 the first ascent of Cascade Peak (11,500 feet), which also lies in the St. Elias Mountains. They had technical difficulties in their 18 hours of continuous climbing from the western base of the peak. In July Denton also climbed another high peak in the Kaskawulsh drainage area, lying between Kaskawulsh Camp and Mount Alverstone.
