Mystery Mountain Project: Film and Panel Event

Six people stand in front of a wooden boat in period clothing

In 1926, a young couple set off into the British Columbia backcountry in search of a route to a mountain now known as Mount Waddington, the highest and perhaps most daunting peak on Canada’s Pacific Coast. A century later, a group of would-be-adventurers tries to retrace their steps. And they’re determined to do it using only period equipment, similar to what was used by the Munday expedition in 1926, without any modern technology whatsoever. They soon find they’ve bitten off more than they can chew and it will take everything they’ve got to avoid disaster.

Join President of the Canada EH Society Bryan Thompson, filmmaker Greg Gransden, climber and author Susanna Oreskovic, BC Archivist Emerita Dr. Kathryn Bridge and great-niece of Don and Phyllis Munday, Deborah Munday for a panel discussion and screening of the documentary.
