19,540 feet higher than the sea. 13,500 feet of vertical relief. 62 miles of circumference. By some geographical measures it's the largest peak in the world. To climbers, that theory has never felt far from the truth.

The peak is Mt. Logan, Canada's highest mountain and the centerpiece of our latest issue: Alpinist 31. Author Joe Josephson's Mountain Profile on Logan details its prodigious history, from its first recorded sighting in 1891 to the Giri-Giri Boys' recent ascent of the 2500-meter southeast face. Over the past 120 years, no matter the route, climbers have come to a consensus: Logan's size seems to defy all logic.
