Some works have a climax that is both logical and emotional.  A logical climax follows the sequence of events of the story and makes sense.  It is the highest point of the plot. An emotional climax is a catharsis of emotion.  It might occur later or earlier than the logical climax.  Some stories only have one or the other.
