Highlights
  • Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America's Rocky Mountain range; it is also the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.
  • 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.
  • 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.
