Nothing like a summit that one must strattle just to be offically on the top! Great capture and thanks for sharing. Thanks for sharing this one with everyone on SP!

Yes, it's the smallest summit I have ever been on and very exposed.

Great shot!

It's my understanding that Waddington is one of the most challenging peaks in North America.

Re: Great shot!

The summit tower is only 5.6 in dry conditions and even when it's all iced up like when we did it it's not too bad.
It's getting to this tower that is the big problem with many objective hazards no matter which route you take. The weather here is very poor for the most part and storms come in regularly and quick. For being ony 180 miles away from Vancouver it's amazing how remote it is even today. Cheers
