Mount Luciania is the third highest peak in the Saint Elias Range, and the highest in a cluster of high peaks in the northern part of the range. It has its place in mountaineering history, having been the world's first mountain to be approached with the aid of a high elevation aircraft landing. This was not, however, a graceful success, as the plane which dropped off Washburn and Bates at 8,500 feet for their 1937 first ascent became stuck in slush upon landing, and it took five days before the plane was able to take off again.
