Follow Mark & Janelle Smiley's journey to climb the Fifty Classic Climbs of North America. The South Face of Mt Waddington is located in British Columbia's remote Coast Range.

"I often think of those marvelous weeks spent in the Waddington Range in 1950. 2 new routes on the northern side of the peak and the 3rd ascent of the mountain as well. Waddington is one of the more beautiful peaks in all of Canada and it's only 175 miles north of Vancouver. B.C.!!"
