Mount Logan, East Ridge. On June 10 Sandy Brown, Tom Dyer, Rick Holmes, Dave Williams and I left the bridge over Slim’s River and arrived on the 18th at the base of the east ridge of Mount Logan via the Kaskawulsh and Hubbard Glaciers. Gil Harder and Arnie McMillan meanwhile flew in with gear and food for 30 days. We used sleds and a 1000-foot haul line to get loads up the true left side of the ridge in two days. Camps were at 8600, 11,000, 13,000 and 15,500 feet. We occupied a higher camp on July 8. Brown, Holmes and Williams reached the main summit on the 9th. Harder and I got to the east peak the following day.
