The north face of Mount Robson is heavily glaciated and 800 metres (2600 feet) of ice plunge down from the top to the shores of Berg Lake. The Emperor Face on the northwest side provides a fierce challenge to anyone wishing to attempt a route up this vertical wall of rock and ice. With the combination of no easy routes up Mount Robson and frequent severe weather, the result is usually just a handful of successful climbs each year.
The south face of Mount Robson is clearly visible from the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 16). The north face can be seen from Berg Lake, reached by a 17.5-kilometre hike.
