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 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.
