If you do not have mountaineering experience then this is not the climb for you, for now anyway. One of the more classic routes is the Kain Face route. For more of a challenge, there’s the Emperor Face route. Then, when you’re done with Mount Robson, you can even climb nearby Mount Resplendent or Helmet Peak.
