With all the warm weather recently, it is time to kick off the rock climbing season. To keep access simple and climbing warm, I was planning on climbing something easy on Mt. Yamnuska. As you most likely know, it is south facing and should warm up nicely with all the sun it gets. For now, I was thinking of Easy Street 5.6. This sounds very easy, but the climbs on Yam are old school and should net get underestimated. It is also still a kind of winter and likely not a lot, if at all, other parties climbed this route before, so there is likely some looser rock to be expected. Therefore you should be able to give me a save belay, know how to clean trad gear have a bit of multi pitch experience. To be considered for this trip, please send me a short email describing your climbing experience to link_tobias(at)

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
