After a day hike through the beautiful the Berg Lake trail and a traverse of the Robson Glacier our climbing party of three finally reached the bottom of the dome. On the next morning to all our surprise the sky cleared, there was no wind and the visibility was perfect. It was a perfect summit day, which is pretty rare event for Mt. Robson. As most of you might know, Mt. Robson is famous for its terrible weather conditions even during the so called climbing season July-August. The pyramid looking top is almost always covered with some nasty clouds. We start to make our way through the top. It took us only two hours to reach the ridge and we continue to move along the southern ridge in accordance with the Kain Face Route description. Just below the 50 deg ice cliff my climbing partner did not feel well, so wee had to retreat. I was a little bit disappointed, since we misted a perfect summit opportunity, but over all I was very pleased to climb this magnificent mount. I enjoyed the trip even though we did not reach the summit. After all, It was not completely unsuccessful day. From the ridge a made a two hour summit on the neighbor mountain Resplendent (3426 m) via the Normal Route.
"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words."
