SIGNED/INSCRIBED on the FEP by Norman Watson: "With many thanks for your help and advice. Norman J. Watson April 1935"

Foreword by Frank Smythe. One of the few books on Mt Waddington in British Columbia, Canada, it includes the first crossing of the Coast Range.  An account of the first ski-mountaineering adventure to British Columbia's highest peak, Mount Waddington (Mystery Mountain).

From the dust jacket:
"This important travel-book describes the adventurous crossing on ski of the little-known Coast Range of British Columbia, which has only recently been found to contain a peak (Mount Wadding-ton, or 'Mystery Mountain') over 13,000 feet high.

Sir Norman Watson's party approached with pony transport through the densely wooded river valleys east of the range, eventually carrying the loads on foot up to their base camp above the snow line, at the foot of the Scimitar Glacier. At the top of this Glacier, lies Fury Gap, a 2,000-foot col at the foot of Mount Waddington. A forward camp was established here, and the assault party of three (including  Sir  Norman Watson) chose their moment, climbed the col and made their successful, though unexpectedly difficult, dash down to the Pacific on skis while the rest of the party, with the transport (in charge of Mr. King), laboriously retraced their first route.

Apart from its interest as a tale of adventure, this entertaining narrative is the first to deal with. ski-mountaineering as a weapon of exploration; and it shows the possibilities of the Coast Range, if it can be opened up, as a pleasure-ground second to none in the world."
