Name Notes: AINA means Arctic Institute of North America, a research and educational organization at the University of Calgary. For years AINA operated a high altitude research station near this peak. The institute used this camp from 1967-1979 to conduct several high-altitude physiological experiments that were led by Charles Houston. A book called "Going High and Going Higher" was published detailing the results of the experiments. This campsite was also used by the institute in 1948 to conduct an experiment called "Project Snow Cornice". Individuals at AINA have produced a map of the Mount Logan area, attaching various informal names to some of the subpeaks of Mount Logan. However, these names are not officially labelled on the 1:50,000.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
