      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Waddington Range - multiple 7/23/2016

Recommended Posts

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...

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!
