Mount Robson Kain Face

The Big One

Mt Robson Canada is one of the most beautiful and most sought-after peaks in the Canadian Rockies. From the parking lot of Mt Robson, the 12,972 feet of rock and snow towers above like no other mountain in Canada. Mt. Robson is one of Canada's more challenging summits; it sees at most a few summits per year. Like the great mountains of the world Mt. Robson makes its own weather and poses many challenges to even the most experienced mountaineer. With all these challenges, being in a park and in one of the most stunning places globally, it rivals even the Himalayan Mountains' great peaks. Mt Robson is a “must-do” proud summit and the king of the Canadian Rockies.
