Mount Tiedemann
This peak is #8 on the Height List for British Columbia .Mount Tiedemann is the second highest peak in the Coast Mountains, 3 km to the northeast of Mount Waddington, and separated from it by a deep pass joining the Tiedemann and Schimitar glaciers. Tiedemann is the highest point in a cluster of peaks on the far side of the big drop. The south face is generally rocky; the north side is cloaked in snow and ice.

Name Notes: BC Placename cards say: Adopted 3 April 1928 on Ottawa file OBF 1018, as suggested by Don Munday because or its' proximity to Tiedemann Creek and Glacier (file M.1.27). The creek itself was named after Herman O. Tiedemann, CE, explorer of the Homathko River, 1862 - 1872. According to January 1972 advice from Provincial Archives, Tiedemann wrote to Mr. Waddington in July 1862, stating that he named this stream after himself, after nearly drowning in it.
