(CANCELED) Yamnuska

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Yamnuska Scramble

    10 KM and 900 meters

     This is not a beginners event but if you have hiked lots are fit and would like to attempt a scramble we can accommodate you. Please be aware there is exposure and a significant scree run on the way down. We will not be turning back so do your home-work before answering yes.

    Rating: S6- Scramble:

    To reach the summit we will go through the crux...a small section where you have to walk on a narrow ledge (roughly 50 feet or so). But there is a cable to guide you along the section which proves especially useful for those who have a bit of a fear of heights! This will not be a point of decision...your decision is made when you RSVP. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT2Bv4fu0H0

     

    Event Directions:

    Hwy 1 west to the Exshaw Seebe turnoff, then north on the 1X to the T intersection. Then go east 2.1 km. and turn left onto the quarry road. Keep left, then straight to the parking area

    Dress in layers - you'll warm up & cool down quickly

  • Doug R

    I will show up at Shouldice if anyone doesn't want to go I totally understand. Although you never know what the weather gods can offer?

      Yamnuska is a stunning trip but the rain just kills it for me! I'm going to take my name off the list now so some other brave soul can have my spot <sob> and hope that there is another opportunity to go before the snow flies. I went and bought boots today at MEC too :( They are stunningly comfortable and I would bring my shoes in my pack just in case. This is heartbreaking :( I've checked several weather forecast sites for Canmore and they all show just steady rain for the next 2 days...

    Ok as much as I like a good picnic in the rain I am changing this scramble to Sunday. Hopefully the rains will pass? I will not be at Shouldice in the morning.

  • Maro S.

    I would like to join a carpool from Calgary to the trail head if possible. Thanks!

    September 3, 2013

    • Maro S.

      Do you know if anyone else is NOT going to the picnic after? I have to be somewhere in the evening so if there's no one to carpool with who will be going back to yyc after the hike I will have to take a chance on my rickety car making it to the trail head and back :-) I'm guessing this can be determined at Shouldice in the morning?

      September 6, 2013

    • Maro S.

      Thanks I appreciate the offer but I've decided to take my name off the list :(Hopefully next time!
