Mount Victoria is a mountain located above Queens Reach of Jervis Inlet within the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains of British Columbia Canada. The mountain was named during the 1860 survey by the HMS Plumper who charted all of the known area and named the mountain after HRH Princess Beatrice Mary Victoria “baby” who was the ninth child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.[2]

The first ascent of Mount Victoria was made in 1929 by Arthur Tinniswood Dalton and Percy Williams Easthope.[3]
