|A high, remote, and glaciated summit at the headwaters of the Cheakamus River. Its glaciated slopes are generally gentle. The summit is a steep walk via its northwest ridge. It is a steep ski ascent in late winter when there is enough snow to cover the rocks. The approach to this remote mountain is lengthy and arduous, usually via Singing Pass, Overlord Mountain, and the Diavolo Glacier. It is usually climbed as part of a McBride traverse.|
Name Notes: The peak was named in 1930 after Sir Richard McBride (1870-1917). He was first elected to the legislature in 1898. In 1903, at the age of 33, became the youngest premier in the history of British Columbia. He was the founder of the Conservative Party in BC.
