Forbidden Corner

  • Description

    This is a classic, 10-pitch rock route up the south face of Yamnuska that is also one of our favourite climbs. Expect a solid day of limestone rock climbing with exposed sections and a bunch of traverse pitches as we navigate our way up. FC is a memorable old school route with lots of flavour.
