Canadian rock climbing was born on the big flat face of Yamnuska. For more than 50 years aspiring youth and grizzled veterans have been putting up new routes on the south-facing slab that faces the sun and attracts climbers every month of the year. In the first-ever climbing guide to the Yam, you will find 115 routes described in detail and accompanied by maps and photographs. Yamnuska holds a special place in the hearts of people who seek adventure. Climbs range in grade from 5.5 through 5.12, and styles encompass the very bold to the more conservative. The cliff is steeped in history. There is a spiritual nature that is hard to explain, but many climbers have shared this feeling after a day scaling her lofty heights. Partnerships develop between friends and the mountain that can last a lifetime.

Ghost Rock is a guide to sport and multi-pitch rock climbs in the Ghost River and Waiparous Creek areas west of Calgary. It gives detailed route descriptions, along with chapter by chapter parking access and approach details. By local standards, the Ghost has climbing on above average rock. Even with 200 new routes since the first edition it is still, however, woefully underdeveloped. Already a mecca for ice climbers, the Ghost is fast becoming one of the premier rockclimbing areas in Western Canada. It is a virtual candy store of new routes and will remain so for some time to come. Over 35 kilometres of steep cliff line, coupled with its remote and relatively wild nature, make for an unforgettable rock climbing experience.
