Giri-Giri Crush South Face of Logan

The Japanese climbers who call themselves the Giri-Giri Boys have completed a long standing North America climbing project, the Southeast face of Mount Logan. Rising over 9,000 feet from the glacier below, this is where Ryan and I had planned to go last year before Ryan's injury. They did a nice job, spent three days on the face, and descended the East Ridge. They ended up climbing the single relatively safe line splitting the middle of the South face, the same line we had hoped to try. Scooped! Here is a link to Climbing's Hot Flashes report.
