Emperor Falls on the approach hike to Berg Lake


The highest of the Canadian Rockies and one of the great mountains of the World. The map should give you some info until this page is finished.

Mount Robson Provincial Park, near Valemount, BC, has three of British Colombia's best Rockies summits. Mount Robson (3,954m) is the highest mountain of the Canadian Rockies and on of the toughest. Resplendent Mountain (3,246m) is easy enough to have been skied half a century ago. Whitehorn Mountain (3395m) is one of the twenty or so Rockies peaks higher than 11,000 feet.

The nearest bouldering, sport cragging, and walls are in Jasper, Alberta.

Ice climbing has been done along the Berg Lake trail. On my maps look for light pencil notes, just past Kinney Lake.

The best pictures ever of Mount Robson can be viewed at John Scurlock's gallery. The photos of Robson have dates, so I can tell you they were taken right after a big storm in May, 2008. (Canmore got 60cm)

The Kain Route is the original way up Mount Robson. There once was a huge serac that loomed over part of the face, but glacial wasting has now removed the threat. Currently, this is probably the safest way to climb Robson. Remote climbing with low odds for success given the weather, snow conditions and logistics. Still once you get your shot, moderate to steep snow and ice climbing up the Kain Face and then moderate climbing up snow and ice faces and around gargoyles of ice leads to a large su...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
