Yamnuska - 2 routes with Ryan

Ryan near the top of King's Chimneys on Mt. Yamnuska.

Had a great day of rock climbing up on Yamnuska with Ryan from Ontario. We started out with the Unnamed route (AKA the Pumpkin Route) which is one of the best 5.7 climbs on the wall. Despite it being Ryan's first multipitch climb we made it up the route super fast and were keen for more! After a quick bite to eat we ran back to the base and climbed Kings Chimneys, another fun route on the west end of the mountain. It went smoothly too and we were soon shaking hands on top. In total we climbed about 450m of rock, mostly in the 5.4-5.7 range. I think Ryan is now hooked on multipitch climbing and I hope to be able to climb with him again in the future!
