Eric and I have been in Canmore for the last week, busy climbing and eating too much each night. Here are a few snaps from the hulking piece of limestone outside town famously know as Yamnuska. Yam comes with a reputation for adventure and epics so we approached through the vibrant, gren meadow below with due trepidation. The first day we set our sights on "Forbidden Corner" (10 pitches, 5.9) and came away unscathed. The next day we rallied for "Kahl Wall" (9 pitches, 5.10) and topped out just as the first claps of thunder unleashed rain in the valley below.
All in all a good adventure.
