MONT LOGAN

EXPEDITION

THE EXPEDITION PROJECT

Autonomous ascent of the East ridge of Mont Logan 5959M from the Malaspina glacier, Pacific Ocean Altitude 0. Descent by the same route on skis, snowboard and monoski to the base camp on the eastern slope, bypassing the summit from the north to join Hubert’s landing then descent by cataraft to Flag point, Pacific Ocean.
Long-distance crossing, from April 29 to June 10, 2019, between the parks of Wranggle St-Elias (USA) and Kluane (CA). About 600KM covered by ski touring, split board (snowboard and monoski) and cataraft.
By Hélias Millerioux, Alex Marchesseau, Thomas Delfino et Grégory Douillard. Expédition en 4 phases :
1- Approach (Pacific Ocean-CB Logan):
Departure by fishing boat from the village of Yakutat (Alaska, Pacific Ocean) on April 28
2- East bridge of Mont Logan A-R.
Mount Logan’s East ridge 2100M base camp was reached on May 14 using Pulkas to transport the 320KG of equipment (food, camping and mountaineering supplies).

3- Return (CB-Hubert’s Landing).
On May 27, Greg was evacuated for medical reasons. The following days, the three adventurers cross the Canada / USA border but the snow from the Logan glacier gradually gives way to ice and then to endless moraines, a veritable labyrinth of mineral Minos where the drone takes on a cartographic vocation here, to find the route. less energy-consuming to survey, with bags of more than 35KG each.
4- Cataraft (Hubert’s-Flag point, Pacific Ocean).
Hélias and Alex embark for eight days and more than 300 KM across the Chitina rapids and then the Copper river. They dock on June 10 at Flag point.
The loop is complete after 42 days of total immersion in the American “wild”. A trip lived day by day with in mind the irrepressive desire to “get lost” to better “find” internally.

All their electronic equipment has been recharged by POWERTEC solar chargers and batteries!

The load of the Drone Maveric Pro with the Powertec panel was essential in the passage of the Logan glacier: the ice then the interminable moraines, a veritable labyrinth of mineral Minos where the drone took on a cartographic vocation, to find the least energy-consuming route to survey, with bags of more than 35KG each.
