North America, Canada, Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson Traverse

Mount Robson Traverse. On August 20 Michael Sawicky and I climbed the long snow and ice face on the north side of Mount Robson. Reaching the top of the face at two A.M. we continued through the ice formations of the narrow Emperor Ridge and arrived at the summit at seven A.M. Near the summit we saw what we believed were mountain goat tracks. Because of the instability of the snow at and above the Hourglass, we descended by the Schwarz Ledges, which presented a complicated route-finding problem from above.
