Mt. Lucania 2♀21
All-Woman Ascent of Canada's Third Highest Peak
Mt. Lucania (5226m), Canada’s third tallest peak, is notoriously windy and cold. Nestled deep in the Yukon’s Kluane National Park and Reserve, this seldom-visited peak has only been climbed by less than a handful of women, and never by an all-woman team. The two-person team, Marceau and Capozzola, became the first women to do so. This was Pascale’s second attempt at Mt. Lucania.
Mt. Lucania lies 65km north of its famous neighbour, Mt. Logan - Canada’s tallest mountain. Due to its remoteness and harsh weather, this lesser-known peak is rarely climbed. Through captivating imagery and story-telling, we hope to inspire others to follow their dreams. Fostering an appreciation for Canada’s wild places is also very close to our hearts. We aim to boost Canadian women’s mountaineering renown. What better way to do so than on our home turf, amongst Canada’s breathtaking giants!
