Grillmair Chimneys

  • Description

    This historical 9-pitch climb was the first technical line up the steep south face of Yamnuska and is still very popular today. The line follows a right leaning weakness that has an alpine rock feel and finishes with a fun, airy chimney and the memorable worm-hole.
