Yamnuska, South Face and Mount Temple, North Face. Bojan Pograjc, Nejc Škov and I climbed in the Canadian Rockies from June 25 to August 4. We made two possibly new routes. The first was on the south face of Yamnuska, a 400-meter high rock face near Calgary. We climbed it on June 28 and rate it as 5.10b. The second climb, on July 1, was on the right side of the 1350-meter-high north face of Mount Temple. The route had 700 meters of ice and 370 meters of very steep rock (UIAA VII—, A2 on rock and up to 75° on ice). Having no bivouac equipment with us, we climbed it in 16 hours.
