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.
