Basecamp Location - Waddington Range
The Munday's first explored this region a century ago but this legendary group of mountains still remains relatively unknown with few travellers due to its hard access. A world of ice and monstrous peaks, the Waddington Range hosts numerous large peaks and with Himalayan proportions, it was the film location of Seven Years in Tibet.
This location falls under our Tier 3- Central Coast Locations. Our camp will be established in the 2km wide (!!) Dais Glacier with a multitude of ski descents and mountaineering objectives in every direction.
Possible summits include:
- NW summit of Waddington (3975m)
- Mount Munday (3356m)
- Mount Cavalier (2641m)
- Regal Dome (2814m)
- Mount Sockeye (2728m)
- Mount Agur (3086m)
- Whitetip Mountain (2444m)
- Mount Finality (2828m)
And various other summits.
Our basecamp is placed high at 2000m, with 600-1000m runs on all sides!
If lucky, an opportunity to ski a 1600m descent to the base of Fury Gap makes for the most incredible ski runs of your life.
This location is best April into early June.
