5 out of 5 stars Kahl Wall

Definitely worth it's 3 stars it gets in yamnuska rock.
Climbed this route in the sun after a month stretch of rain and snow, making it that much more enjoyable.

The first 10a pitch felt true to grade and although the guide book shows many bolts, the distance between modern bolts I felt was fairly spaced so although the face was bolted, it was not sport climbing by any means. The second 10a pitch felt considerably easier.

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb

We had a very small window for weather that day. Forecasted snow in the morning followed by a couple hours of sun then snow in the early afternoon.

I've always wanted to climb this route but never felt like hiking all the way up for 3 pitches but figured since we only had a couple of hours of weather it was perfect.

The first pitch was crap. A big pile of choss and wasn't to inspiring but the next two were second to none!

Unlike a previous post, I was happy I brought up a couple smaller cams to help protect the second pitch... definitely not necessary but was nice to have.

5 out of 5 stars Ultra Classic

One of my favourite routes in all of Jasper.
If you're at rock gardens you MUST climb.

Maybe a little soft. I found it a lot easier than bandaid box (11.b)
