Detailed Product Description

Canada, no date [ca. 1972], 1st edition. 200 pp, many b/w and color photos, appendices, glossary, index, end paper maps. Larger hardcover with nearly chipped dust jacket, book is fine. Near Fine. 

EPHEMERA: Enclosed are a typed letter and a handwritten note concerning a fast ascent of Mount St Elias in 1980 (15 days) and what appears to be  the first traverse of the peak to two climbers, Chris Pizzo and Rob Leutz. (Chris Pizzo was on the Everest The Testing Place ascent of Everest in 1981, the year after his Elias climb. So Logan and Everest in two years. Nice peak bagging!) 

An account of the 1967 Centennial expedition in the St. Elias Mountains in southwestern Yukon. Includes a climbing history in the St Elias region. 'One of the most unusual of all the projects undertaken to mark Canada's Centennial year was a mountain climbing expedition in the St Elias Mountains, Yukon Territory. Organized jointly by the Alpine Club of Canada and the Yukon Government, the Yukon Alpine Centennial Expedition involved more than 250 climbers and was the most extensive mountaineering expedition ever to take place in the world. Foreword by John Hunt.

The team made 13 first ascents, plus climbs of Mounts Steele, Walsh and Wood.
 
As well as a full account of the project, this book includes the only history of mountaineering in the St Elias area, a comprehensive list of the flora of the Steele Glacier region, an illustrated glossary of mountaineering terms, and a full discussion of the little-known phenomenon of glacier surges.

[Neate F35: Canadian centennial celebration expedition to the St. Elias Mountains in 1967, making many first ascents in the Centennial Range and elsewhere. Includes history of ascents in the region, prepared by Walter A. Wood.]
