Join me on this spectacular adventure as we reach for the highest summit of British Columbia‘s coast mountains: Mount Waddington. Using the Bravo Glacier Route, we’ll spend 7 days in the mountain to reach our goal of 4,019 meters. Come experience one of the finest alpine granites in this corner of the world.

For this exciting trip, we’ll keep Mount Waddington as a goal, but acclimatize and practice on other nearby peaks. These include Bravo Peak, Spearman Peak, Combatant Mountain, Mount Tiedemann and Asperity Mountain. You can check the itinerary below to review the organization of the adventure.

This is an advanced mountaineering program, where previous experience with Summit Mountain Guides is mandatory. You must have experience with a mixed alpine terrain, crampons and, hopefully, overnight mountaineering and winter camping experiences. We can review your experience together and decide on this trip.

If you are looking for an adventure to the beautiful landscapes of the northwest where to put your skills in practice, look no more. The incredible Mount Waddington is waiting for you! And I would love to guide you in this exciting adventure.
