The highest mountain in BC has a lure of course, but Waddington is a very special peak for reasons beyond its place at the top of the elevation list. Set in a vast and dramatic wilderness, the height of Waddington is particularly noticeable when you stand on its 4015m summit and gaze upon the ocean. Our week-long trip into the Waddington area aims to climb a few other peaks in the area before heading for the main objective. If you have some mountaineering experience and Waddington has been on your list (as it is for mountaineers the world over!) please get in touch to set up a trip.

I have had the benefit of Jan's guiding on four separate occasions over the years. From an initial top rope rock climbing course, through to a wild expedition in the Waddington range, Jan has provided me with solid instruction and guiding to the highest standards. Jan's friendly nature and wide ranging conversational interests make his trips all the more entertaining. I recommend Jan without hesitation as a guide to your adventures.Mort Allingham, Comox, BC.
