Climbers come from all over the world, not just North America, to take on this climb. The first ascent was made by Conrad Kain in 1913 and from then it has been put on many mountaineers bucket list.
Best time to visit
July and August
How to get there
Drive from Kamloops or Vancouver to the trail head. For some trips you may fly to a higher point
The climate is alpine and cold year round. The weather is also unpredictable and needs to be monitored carefully before climbing
There are a few different routes to the summit of Mount Robson, however, they are all technical ascents. 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
