My partner and I are planning to attempt Robson's North Face this August. We're considering using Robson Helimagic to fly into Berg Lake or possibly Rearguard Meadows (between Rearguard and Waffl). Is anyone out there interested in sharing a ride? For up to 3 people, it's $314 per person to fly into the lake and $439 per person to fly into Rearguard Meadows. The price is significantly less per person with a party of 4 ($100-200 less pp, depending on the destination). If there's a party of 2 who are interested, let me know. Flying into the top of the Dog Buttress costs the same as Rearguard Meadows, but I had to draw the line on cheating somewhere. Rearguard Meadows (and the lake, of course) can provide access to either the Emperor/North Face and Kain Face.
We fly into Calgary on August 5. We would try to fly into Robson as soon as possible after that so we can sit and watch it storm for as long as possible for the two weeks we have before flying home.
