Canadian rock climbing was born on the big flat face of Yamnuska. For more than 50 years aspiring youth and grizzled veterans have been putting up new routes on the south-facing slab that faces the sun and attracts climbers every month of the year. In the first-ever climbing guide to the Yam, you will find 115 routes described in detail and accompanied by maps and photographs.
Yamnuska holds a special place in the hearts of people who seek adventure. Climbs range in grade from 5.5 through 5.12, and styles encompass the very bold to the more conservative. The cliff is steeped in history. There is a spiritual nature that is hard to explain, but many climbers have shared this feeling after a day scaling her lofty heights. Partnerships develop between friends and the mountain that can last a lifetime.

Researched and written by legendary alpinist Chic Scott, with the assistance of mountain guide Mark Klassen, this guidebook will continue to be the bible of ski mountaineers in the Rockies. There are plenty of new tours in the book, particularly in newly developed areas where skiers can grab a few powder turns near the road. Information on other areas have been either greatly expanded or completely rewritten and updated. The entire book is printed in colour, showcasing many mouthwatering ski images and destinations. Digital shaded maps prepared from satellite imagery illustrate the routes and terrain and allow this guidebook to set a new standard for ski guidebooks in North America.
