  • A truly classic peak in the central Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Mt. Waddington offers an amazing setting for a week of mountaineering. At 4,011 meters (13,175') and surrounded by majestic peaks and glaciers, the climb of Mt. Waddington's NW Summit is truly a "mountaineers mountain" that can be climbed by anyone with a moderate amount of mountaineering experience.
