Mt. Robson 3,954m , 12,972ft, Grade IV Kain Face Summit Attempt

Mt Robson Kain Face Attempt.

On August 27th Ross Berg, Paul McSorley and I used Yellowhead Helicopters to fly into the Dome of Mt. Robson with five clients. Yellowhead Helicopter’s 206 Pilot did a great job flying us into the 3150m Dome landing in 4 flights.  What a great place to be flown into to start a guided trip.  We were hoping to guide the trip from the highway, however there was poor weather in the forecast so we decided to just fly everyone into the Dome bellow the Kain Face of Mt Robson.  We were not able to sneak up to the summit before the poor weather started.  The winds increased to over 100km per hour and it ended up snowing about 40cm.  All and all it turned out to be a fantastic guided trip with some inspirational guests.
