"Mount Anne-Alice was named in 1939 by Anne MacLean Chesser and Alice Wright. After climbing the peak and finding no evidence of previous climbers they built a stone cairn at the summit, and claimed first ascent. Anne MacLean came from Nova Scotia in 1930 to visit her sister Sophie MacLean Hargreaves, and brother-in-law, Roy. She married Chuck Chesser in 1931 and they all became partners in the tourism and outfitting business at Mount Robson. Alice Wright was a frequent visitor at Berg Lake Chalet through the '30's and '40's. In 1959 she purchased Mount Robson Ranch from Roy & Sophie Hargreaves, and was a well-known member of the tourism/outfitting industry throughout the Rockies. In 1977 she sold Mount Robson Ranch and retired." - Peakfinder.com

Follow the Berg Lake Trail to the Berg Lake Campground/Hargreaves Shelter. At the campground follow the Toboggan Falls Trial to where it branches towards Hargreaves Glacier/Lake. Follow the trail across the creek, at this point Anne-Alice will be the peak on your right. Bushwhack towards the North-West, there is an obvious saddle in the middle of the mountain (it is a slide path in the winter/spring), aim for that. Climb the 3rd and 4th class terrain to the right of the slide path (of course, be cautious when crossing it). After gaining the saddle follow the long summit slopes (1-2km) to the top. The descent is the reverse. Takes 7-8 hours for a fit party from Berg Lake to Berg Lake.
