Mount Waddington is the highest mountain in the Coast Range of British Columbia. It is an immense snowy massif, whose valleys are filled with glaciers that stretch for miles. Many steep faces rise up to 5,000 feet. The mountain's structure has inspired comparisons to the Mont Blanc massif. Mount Waddington is a remote mountain requiring a lengthy approach, typically from sea. Boats are usually hired in Vancouver for the long seaward approach through the Strait of Georgia and Knight Inlet, although shorter journeys are possible by hiring a boat from any of the small coastal harbors of Vancouver Island.
