Default Mt. Fromme

Got out for a little leg stretch today. Started off in the mosquito creek area and made my way to the summit. First time on Fromme, very difficult route to follow as many other trails intersect as well as heavy braiding. Would have easily ended up well off track were it not for gps. Ran into some snow around the 900m mark. Postholed quite a bit, had micro spikes but didn’t really need them as the snow was very soft.

Had the summit to myself and was quite warm. A couple bald eagles gave a rather low fly by inspecting my dog so I put him on his leash & kept him close. The day ended up being about 17.7km and 7.25 hours including breaks.

Sounded like a great satisfying trip for the day, and your companion seems like he was thrilled about it.

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

Good hike. Starting at the top of St George's street (just off of braemar) is a great place to start... its my go to. Follow St George's trail up, Peer Gynt, and Fromme Summit Trail. In the spring if you are fit its a fun ~2hr trail run.

In the summer linking mnt fromme up with skyline trail to goat mountain and crown mnt is a full day epic trail run/hike.

I was looking at this on the map, so many connections to other mtns.

Here's what you can do:

-- up Fromme normal way from Prospect Rd
-- from Fromme summit drop west to Pipeline Pass
-- Take "Erik the Red" trail to Thunderbird Ridge
-- continue east to Little Goat then back to Grouse via Dam Mtn
-- descend BCMC & take Baden Powell east to Prospect Rd


I've written detail report on similar loop

With enough energy one can, instead of going back to Grouse, descend to Crown Pass then back via Hanes Valley to Lynn & Baden Powell west to Prospect. This is ultra long day but great North Shore experience.
