Mount Logan, Winter Ascent. Mike Hill, Troy Ness, and I did the first winter ascent of Mount Logan on December 29, 1981. From Junction Camp, we ascended and ran the ridge on Soldier Boy to the base of a steep couloir, where we made our high camp on the third day. The next morning we ascended the couloir which gave us access to the Fremont Glacier. The 200 feet from the glacier to the ridge notch, and then the ridge to the summit, was steep thinly- ice-covered rock, and provided some very interesting climbing.
