More info about Mountain Climbing in Mount Waddington:

At 4019 m.a.s.l, Mount Waddington is the highest mountain in the Coastal Range. Because it is such a remote spot, it used to be referred to as “Mystery Mountain” as it was difficult to approach. It was successfully climbed for the first time in 1936, and has since become a top spot for mountaineers looking for a challenging peak to test their skills. To get to the top of Mount Waddington a good physical preparation is paramount. Furthermore, technical skills are needed as snow, ice and rocks are all part of the terrain you will encounter. Most programs take a minimum of 7 days to the top, so overnight mountaineering and winter camping experience are good to have under the belt. Make sure to book an experienced certified guide to ensure the best out of your Waddington adventure!
