Mount Logan, Yukon – On May 24, 2017 15-year-old Naomi Prohaska of Pemberton, British Columbia summited Mount Logan in Kluane National Park Reserve in the Yukon in Canada. In doing so, she became the youngest person to climb Mount Logan – Canada’s highest peak at 5,959 meters. Congrats Naomi!

Prohaska trained for 2 years in order to climb the peak. She was part of a trip that was led by her father. They climbed the mountain via the King’s Trench route. The round trip mountain journey took three weeks to complete.

Mount Logan is the highest peak in Canada with a summit of 5,959 meters. It is the second highest peak in North America after Denali. It is located in Kluane National Park Reserve near the Yukon/Alaska border. It was first climbed on June 23, 1925. Learn more about Mount Logan on Wikipedia.com.

Watch a short clip about the mission from CBC Yukon:

I am made it! I am the youngest person who has summited Canada’s tallest mountain, Mt. Logan(5959 meters)! I cannot believe I achieved my goal and that this journey is over. First of all I need to thank my family. That have supported me and kept me focused for 2 years! Then thanks to my friends that have encouraged me. Everyone who wished me good luck and congrats have impacted me greatly. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without my sponsors and wouldn’t have been a success without my great team. Thank you so much to @mec @peakperformance @nomadnutritionco @mtnberrylandscaping @jiacondon @richprohaska @fortybelowltd I wish all of you could have seen the view from the top. I can’t wait to tell my story to so many of you in person. #youngestoncanadastop #mec #logan2017 #peakperformance #eatlikenomad
