INTRODUCTION

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)

This historic route was nearly climbed in 1930 by Underhill and O'Brien before the successful 1961 scent.You would be crazy to get your information on this route from a website. This is a serious route that requires significant commitment. I'll share my story but the difficulty depends greatly on conditions and my experience may not be typical.My full experience is at iki.western.edu/mcis/index.php... - take this for what it's worth.
