CMC Wall Area has some of the hardest climbs on the cliff. The climbing is steep, overhanging in places and the rock can be quite scary. That said CMC Wall is one of the best routes on the cliff, and was an amazing achievement at the time. As well Directissima is a popular moderate route on good rock.

Getting There 

This area is found between the left-leaning chimney Calgary Route and Directissima which climbs just east of the summit.

This is a Classic for Yamnuska and can get crowded fast during peak season. It's about 325m and 9 pitches, so start early. Backup the fixed pins when possible. Some of the moves are very committing for 5.8, so come prepared....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
