Ice Avalanche Off Queen Peak in the King Trench, Mount Logan
This peak is #11 on the Height List for Yukon Territory .Queen Peak, the westernmost named summit on the Mount Logan massif, is rarely climbed because of the elaborate approach: first head east along the King Trench route to the 5500-m col, then westward skirting north around AINA Peak. The easiest summit route appears to be via the east ridge.


1. Queen Peak (1960) Jack Wilson and Party. From the standard [Trip3029-King Trench route], gain the Prospectors col, head north and curl counter clockwise around AINA peak. Then head westward paralleling the north side of the AINA-Queen ridge from a col just east of Queen Peak, gain east ridge and follow to the summit.
