Yamnuska: The Ragged Edge

Canada 2023, 80 min, Dir: John Price
Hosted by ACC Edmonton and MEC


Watch Trailer


Yamnuska is the first mountain you see driving from Calgary to Banff and is the birthplace of Canadian Rock Climbing! Follow two modern day adventurers as they embark on a rock climbing journey through time, celebrating the rich history and folklore of one of Canada’s most iconic climbing cliffs as they pay homage to the colourful characters who have etched their names into its vertical walls since the 1950s.


The film shows the evolution of climbing, from the “British Invasion” in the 60’s to “The Bold 80’s” to “Sport Climbing”. Anyone can watch this film and love it, you don’t just have to be a climber to understand it. It will make you laugh, gasp, maybe even cry, and you’ll walk away with respect for the mountains. You might even ask yourself, will you climb on Yamnuska?
