Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America's Rocky Mountain range; it is also the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. The mountain is located entirely within Mount Robson Provincial Park of British Columbia and is the second highest peak entirely in British Columbia, behind Mount Waddington. Mount Robson boasts great vertical relief over the local terrain. From Berg Lake the mountain rises 2,300 m (7,546 ft) to the summit. The north face of Mount Robson is heavily glaciated and 800 m (2,600 ft) of ice plunge from the summit to Berg Glacier. The south side of the mountain rises 3,000 m (9,843 ft) from base-to-summit. The 1,500 m (4,921 ft) Emperor Face on the northwest side provides a formidable challenge to climbers attempting a route up this vertical wall of rock and ice. Mount Robson has a high failure rate on summit attempts with only about a 10% success rate. There is no easy way to the summit and bad weather commonly rebuffs most summit attempts.The main climbing routes on Mount Robson are: * South Face (Normal Route) IV * Kain Face IV (named after Conrad Kain) * Wishbone Arete IV 5.6 * Emperor Ridge V 5.6 * Emperor Face, Stump/Logan VI 5.9 A2 * Emperor Face, Cheesmond/Dick VI 5.9 A2 * Emperor Face, Infinite Patience VI WI5 M5 5.9 * Emperor Face, House-Haley M7 * North Face IV * Fuhrer Ridge IV 5.4
