Mountain Climbing/ Mountaineering

Mount Robson Provincial Park:

The focal point in Mount Robson Provincial Park is Mount Robson, at 3954 metres (12,972 ft.) high, it is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. Robson towers over this entire area and on a clear day the summit can be seen from the Yellowhead Highway (Highways #16 and # 5) that cuts through the park.

Mount Robson Provincial Park is next to the Alberta border and Jasper National Park, with easy access from the east and the west. The mountains, waterfalls, lakes and rivers within the park make it an interesting place for hiking, climbing and backcountry trekking. Mt. Robson and the many other mountains in the park are very challenging to even the most skilled mountaineers. Since first discovered, the mountain has been tempting climbers. Attempts to climb Mt. Robson were made in 1907, 1908 and 1909, all failed. In 1913, two attempts were made. The ascent from the southwest failed, but the one along the northeast face was successful. Ever since, experienced climbers have been trying to conquer Mount Robson and other challenging summits in the area.

Only experienced mountaineers, with proper equipment such as ropes, ice axes, climbing boots, crampons, over night equipment should attempt this climb or try crossing the glaciers and snowfields. Mount Robson and surrounding mountains have taken their toll of climbers. Be safe, have fun!
