Mount Yamnuska, Alberta

Officially named Mount John Laurie in 1961,[3] it is also known as Mount Laurie, or by the Nakoda name Mount Yamnuska, or simply Yamnuska. Yamnuska translates to "wall of stone" and is derived from the Stoney Nakoda word Iyamnathka that describes steep cliffs or "the flat faced mountain."

Standing at approximately 2,240 m (7,350 ft) above sea level, Mount John Laurie is the last mountain on the north side of the Bow River valley (Bow Valley) as it exits the mountains for the foothills and prairie of Alberta. Located close to Calgary, it is a popular "great scramble". It is also a popular rock climbing destination, with over 100 routes of all difficulty levels spread out across its face
