Canmore RCMP recovered a woman's body Wednesday morning on Goat Mountain, just west of Calgary.

Officials were called late Tuesday night after the climber didn't return from the area near Mount Yamnuska.

Kananaskis Emergency Services did an aerial search at first light, finding her body on the mountain’s east face.

The 45-year-old Calgary woman likely fell about 120 metres, RCMP said.

Her name has not been released. 


  • Canmore RCMP said the climber fell from Mount Yamnuska, but later confirmed it was actually Goat Mountain.
