Retribution! Great scramble finish. Got the correct summit this year, as last year I did like Blakester and climbed the tougher Middle Logan (shown in the main photo on the sp page). I obviously didn't take the right beta or memorize the correct photos the first time out.

Also worth noting, a new bridge at Skagit Queen was near completion, and downfall had been cleared all the way to Thunder Basin. The work is appreciated.

Great scramble in a spectacular area. Provides unmatchable view of the northeast aspects of the Buckner to Forbidden to Primus area, with all those huge inter-connected glaciers.

I was on a week-long solo adventure when, near the top of the Fremont Glacier, an energetic youngster came running up and asked to join me for the final summit bit. Turned out to be "Blakester", a lad who just a few years later would amaze the local climbing scene with his masterful climb of Megalodon Ridge on Mount Goode. Using his camera, I took the photo of him on Logan's summit holding baked goods from Stehekin. I guess this was my one brush with a now famous person. (Just kidding Blake).

It took 2 years to return, but this time the glacier was in much better condition. We camped two nights on the Fremont to try and wait the weather out. As if on cue, clear skies showed up after we returned to camp. We felt lucky to get some views on the descent after such a crummy weather year. There's so many mountains to climb, but Logan is one of the select few I'd love to see again. Thanks Josh Lewis for a great climb.

A truly spectacular view, worth every bit of 20 miles to get here. Climbing alone, I started up the Fremont early in the morning and heard the glacier talking to me. In three different sections, the glacier cracked and settled underneath me. Just before reaching the flat section at 8500ft, the ice quickly sank over a foot with a loud crash that echoed throughout the basin. Turning around was a no brainer. I wouldn't normally sign the log after stopping 600 ft. from the summit, but I wanted others to hear about the instability of the Fremont.

Traversed the mountain climbing the Douglas and descending the Fremont. The brush up the Fisher Creek drainage was unpleasant, but workable.

Four beautiful days in the north Cascades! Hiked in over 2 days via Thunder Creek. 12 hours roundtrip from Thunder Basin to summit. Very mild 4th class (if that) up high. You can see EVERYTHING.

The actual summit is definitely easier than the Middle summit.
