North America, Canada, British Columbia, Mt. Robson

Mt. Robson. Fred Ayres and Dick Irvin made a variant of Kain’s original route up Mt. Robson in the summer of 1955. Instead of climbing the steep, often ice-covered rocks above the Dome to reach the southeast ridge they kept to the right as you face the mountain and climbed the hanging glacier in its center. It is less steep and, particularly early in the season, it is merely a question of kicking steps. They feel this route is both easier and safer.
