This is the south view of Mount Robson from the Yellowhead Highway in Mount Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada.
The north face can be seen from Berg Lake, reached by a 19 km (11.8 mi) hike.
Mount Robson is the most prominent mountain in North America’s Rocky Mountain range; it is also the highest point in the Canadian Rockies.
The mountain is located entirely within Mount Robson Provincial Park of British Columbia, and is part of the Rainbow Range.
The Robson Glacier, the source of the Robson River, which flows off the north east flank of Mount Robson at one point in time fed two oceans.
Mount Robson has a high failure rate on climbing to the top, with only about 10% of attempts being successful. Although the mountain is under 4,000 m (13,123 ft), there is no easy way to the summit and bad weather commonly rebuffs most summit attempts.
With Alberta’s Jasper National Park as its easterly neighbour, Mount Robson Provincial Park comprises a portion of one of the world’s largest blocks of protected areas and was designated as a part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990.
