xj6response, the trail we used for the east summits is straight-up from the "Welcome to Whistler" sign just east of the heliport. A bit more elevation gain, but a very nice route just the same. Believe I posted the trip beta a few years ago on this site...
The Ancient Cedars Trail leads to the Newt Lake Trail, but then the routefinding is tricky for the summits. We don't have a good route flagged there yet...
Must give that try. Haven't seen any good map or GPX track of the route up Cougar mountain but always been intrigued by it
