Mount Logan

Recommended Posts


I am working away on a book about Canada's Mount Logan, King Peak, & Mount McArthur. A history of climbs, guidebook, coffee-table sort of thing. I plan on having the book out in late 2006. I am trying to contact climbers from all the first ascents or early and important repeats. Among others, I am looking for contact information on the following climbers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please send any one's personal information to be via PM only. Thanks in advance.
