Description

Yumnuska is a mecca of trad climbing situated only 25 minutes out of Canmore. With routes are anywhere between 30 meters to 300 meters, and can be graded between 5.5 to 5.13, there really is something for everyone. The catch - Climbing at Mt Yumnuska is like trying to climb a giant block of fetta cheese. As such, helmets are strongly recommended.

Approach

Park at the Mt Yumnuska trail head and follow the obvious path upwards from the toilet block. Follow the path over the quarry access road, and you will see a climber managed log book. It's a good idea to list what climb you intending to do, and check if your intended climb for the day has already been claimed. The average party will take an hour to ascend the 500m elevation to the base of the cliff. Approximately 3/4 of the way up, you will see a fork which provides access to different areas of the mountain. On the right there will be a hikers path, which is a longer but less steep access route the base of Ravens End on the Eastern most side of the mountain. Otherwise take either of the climbers access paths depending on which route you intend to climb for the day
