Description

Are you ready for this guided ascent to Mount Robson via the “Kain Face” route?

As one of the most challenging and beautiful summits in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson (3.954 mt/(12,972 ft) presents the ultimate challenge for intermediate and advanced climbers. Join me on this 5-day guided ascent of the “Kain Face” route and prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

On our first day, we will drive to Valemount BC from where we will fly to the Rearguard Meadows or the Extinguisher Tower. From there, we will start our ascent. It will take us 5 to 7 hours to reach our first camp. During the days to come, we will continue ascending, and it will be on our third day that we will make our summit attempt.

After our successful summit attack and depending on participants’ wishes, we may also take on other nearby peaks like Mount Resplendent or Helmet Peak. Or we may even fly out towards the Jasper area and attempt other peaks as well!

Please note that weather on Mount Robson changes quickly and is very difficult to predict. Flexibility will be key, both in terms of timing and in terms of itinerary.

During this 5-day adventure in the Mount Robson Provincial Park, climbers will have the chance to take on the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. So if you are ready for this challenging ascent, request to book this trip and join me on this amazing climb!
