W.A. Don and Phyllis Munday discovered the Mountain in the mid-1920s and had originally called it ‘Mystery Mountain’. They spent over a decade exploring the mountain peaks near Mount Waddington, but were never able to summit the tallest peak in the Coast Mountains. According to the BC Geographical names database, the mountain was named Mount Waddington in 1928.
