Logan Mountains. Hans Ueli Brunner, Paul Muggli and I left Switzerland in early June for the Logan Mountains. On June 19 to 21 climbed the Frost route on Lotus Flower Tower with much snow, though the conditions on the face were good. We climbed the south ridge of Proboscis on June 24 in a single day, again with much snow and some dangerous cornices. On June 27 we made the first ascent of the west peak of Huey’s Spire by its south face. Buckingham climbed the middle and east peaks. This was our most difficult climb. Two other Swiss, Edgar Oberson and Maurice Cochand, came in on the plane which flew us out on July 2. They climbed the Lotus Flower Tower but were weathered off other climbs.
