This 6-pitch climb is a great Yam intro route and gets 2-star climb. The climbing is consistent in the 5.4-5.6 range, takes traditional rock placements, and makes for a nice day out, especially if these grades are your jam. The climbing is quite fun with a good mix of slab and crack climbing, which results in an excellent day out on Yamnuska’s large south face.
