Trip: Waddington Range - multiple

Date: 7/23/2016

Trip Report:
I know this is a little late but I hope it will encourage people to get after it in the Wadd and also contact me if they want any beta.

I took a trip to the Waddington Range in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada, this summer (2016). We flew into the range via helicopter, with White Saddle Air Services (highly recommended) on July 23rd, and flew out on July 31st. The cost of the helicopter ride was partially funded with the American Alpine Club's Live Your Dream Grant so I was required to write an in-depth TR which I thought you all might enjoy reading and browsing...

trip report link

I went with my friends Nick, Chris and Josh. We had near perfect weather for 9 days and climbed the following routes:

-West Ridge, Claw Peak (5.6 130m)
-South Ridge, Serra 2 (5.9 45 deg snow 1500m, TD)
-Bravo Glacier, Mt. Waddington (5.7 AI3 2100m, TD-)

If anyone wants additional info, and it's not in the TR link, please PM me.


Gear Notes:
About what you would expect... pork shoulder and a pressure cooker were essential.

Approach Notes:
White Saddle helis are awesome!
one step, two steps... 10,000
