The Mount Logan (9,087 ft (2,770 m) high) is located in the North Cascades National Park in the US state of Washington . Mount Logan is in a remote region of the North Cascades that requires hiking 20 mi (32 km) to the summit from an entry point. The mountain itself is not too difficult to climb, but even the easiest approaches require crossings of the Geltscher; Crampons are recommended here. The summit is covered by three glaciers, the Banded Glacier in the north, the Fremont Glacier in the southwest, and the Douglas Glacier on the southeast slopes.
