Mount Vancouver, elevation 4785 m, situated in the Yukon Territory's St Elias Mountains, rises southeast of Mount Logan between 2 immense glacier systems, Hubbard and Seward. A large massif, it supports 4 summits and measures 24 km from northwest to southeast at its base. Its southeast summit is a boundary peak between Canada and Alaska, only 32 km from the sea.
The highest (northwest) peak was first climbed in June 1949 by N. Odell, W. Hainsworth, R. McCarter and A. Bruce Robertson. The southeast summit, the highest unclimbed summit left in Canada by 1967, was climbed by a joint US-Canadian team to commemorate the Alaskan and Canadian centennials. It was renamed Good Neighbour Peak.
