Name Notes: Mt. Heaney ( climbed on a BCMC ski expedition) was named after a prominent member of the BCMC -- Charles J. Heaney distinguished himself not only as a mountaineer explorer and lecturer, but also as a land surveyor, his name appears on thousands of survey maps in the New Westminster Land Office. He combined mountaineering trips with mapping surveys, making the first map of the North Shore Mountains (incl. portions of the Watershed, which is no longer accessible for climbing today). A BCMC charter member, he was Vice-President and President between 1917 and 1922 and was made an honorary member of the club in 1942. He was one of the group of BCMC members who contributed directly to the setting aside of the Garibaldi region as parkland.
