Golden Hinde, elevation 2200 m, is the highest mountain on Vancouver Island, located near the Island's centre in Strathcona Provincial Park. The peak was known as Rooster's Comb until R.P. Bishop submitted to the Geographic Board of Canada (confirmed 1939) the present name (after the ship of Sir Francis Drake, who may have reached this latitude and sighted the mountain). Possibly discovered in July 1896 during the Bolton-Laing survey of the Island, it was first ascended in 1913 or 1914 by Einar Anderson, W.R. Kent and W.W. Urquhart during their survey of the newly established provincial park.
