1965 South Ridge (Hummingbird Ridge) Climbing Journal of John Evans
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This is the story of daily happenings on the first ascent of Mount Logan’s Hummingbird Ridge in the summer of 1965. Located in Canada’s Yukon Territory, Logan is the second-highest peak in North America. The climb described is notable partly in light of the technical demands, which —although not extreme—were unrelenting, requiring eight camps and multiple carries over a 28-day period. Also remarkable is the fact that the climb has not been repeated in the subsequent four-plus decades; this has lent a measure of notoriety to the route.
