It's at the eastern end of the coastal range that begins with Mount Saint Elias on the west, and goes eastward. Parties have landed on the Seward Glacier south of Mount Logan's Hummingbird Ridge (N 60:26 W140:25) and from there made easy access of Augusta in 6-7 days. The route of the original ascent in 1952 was via the North Ridge. A second ascent by Don Serl and party in 1987 was made by starting up the north Ridge, then traversing over to the crest of the west ridge. 1:250000 Map showing Augusta, Seward Glacier and Mount Logan
