Ascent Trip Report

We had done 2 days of Climbing in order to get up to the Dome on Mt. Robson in order to do our summit push from that point. On August 19th, the clouds rolled in and the Dome dissapeared under a thick cover. We retreated to Mt. Rearguard meadows to wait out the weather. Unfortunately, that window never came in tome and had to come back down the mountain in order to come back another day.

Turn around point was 3/4 up the "Mousetrap".
