5 out of 5 stars Good introductory climb to Yam.

Second trad lead and first on Yam. Favorite pitch was #3. It was a little run out but the climbing was fairly straightforward. Had lots of rope drag on pitch #2. Should have used my longest runners on those pitons.

BTW, Bow Valley Rock (book) rates this a 5.5 but the Yam book rates this a 5.6. I think the first pitch was closer to 5.6 than a 5.5.

Just got back from 30 day road trip and had an invitation to hit Yam one more time before winter sets in. I always miss the Rockies in a bad way. This was a good fix. Had it to ourselves and not a bad 10C day. The wind laid off . Fantastic outing. Used that 5.9 finish which did not seem like a true layback to me, kind of awkward. Cheers.
