Trip Report

We awoke to a clear sky and millions of stars overhead in our winter camp beneath the Extinguisher Tower just off the Robson Glacier. We were pumped to finally be ascending Resplendent on a perfect, clear spring day next to the mighty Mount Robson and the wild scenery all around us. The day before, we'd skied and scrambled up Rearguard Mountain and got some sublime views of Resplendent, which only wet our appetites to stand on her summit.
