Intro

Mt. Robson is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies and impressive mountain in every direction. Its first ascent was a much sought after prize and the object of several major attempts until guide Conrad Kain and his clients Foster and McCarthy made the first successful ascent in 1913. TOday, the mountain is still a major attraction to climbers from all over the world, partly because of its height but also because all of the routes offer excellent challenges of differeing degrees of difficulty. There are no non-technical routes on Mt. Robson.

Wishbone Arete is included in Steck and Roper's Fifty Classic Climbs on North America. Wishobone Arete is the prominent "wishbone" ridge leading directly to the summit when the mountain is viewed from Yellowehad Highway. The routes follows the right-hand bone in the wishbone. The gargoyles of crappy snow at the top are usually the technical and mental crux. The climb is somewhat overrated considering the amount of loose rock and the long approach. Three days is the usual time taken.
