In July 2018, our Mystery Mountain Project expedition followed the footsteps of intrepid mountaineers Don and Phyllis Munday who explored the Waddington range in 1926.The team spent 21 days navigating the Coast Mountains’ wilderness relying only on vintage and replica period gear. Our second documentary film titled Mystery Mountain Project will be released in 2019.


July 2, 2018 the expedition team was interviewed by Global News at Noon BC. We came showing off some of our vintage gear and talked about the expedition.




On July 2, 2018, our expedition team did a slideshow and presentation. Hosted by the Alpine Club of Canada Vancouver Section and Fjällräven Kitsilano (1976 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC).

Great raffle prizes were won such as one of the two 24×36 inch signed photographs by Ivan Petrov from our Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project and other cool raffle prizes.
