Info from Geoff Ruttan
There are numerous routes on Yamnuska. Ranging from 5 pitch 5.5's to 8 pitch, scary 11c's. A new guidebook titled 'Bow Valley Rock', is available and gives excellent route information. Highly recommendables are; Grillmairs, Easy Street, Forbidden Corner, Kahl Wall, Dreambed, CMC Wall and Necromancer. Lots of routes to choose.
There is a newer duplicate page for "Hard climbers" created by Dow Williams called Yamnuska Rock
The Alpine Club of Canada
Staying at the club in Canmore is 21$ Canadian for members and 27$ for non-members. It can get quite crowded in the summer so a reservation is recommended.
