Ascent Trip Report

A strenuous hike but only a hike since this mountain is served by a marked trail. After eyeing the higher peaks on the North Shore such as Mt. Burwell and Crown Mountain and seeing just how much rotten late spring snowpack still clung to them, we decided to simply hike up something snow-free. A good workout, some nice forest on the way up and a summit view which is a bit unique as one can clearly see the San Juan Islands off in the distance and also recognize Vancouver landmarks. - This is an early season mountain which can constitute good training for one's legs before doing all the scrambling peaks in the area. You can take Vancouver transit bus almost to the start of the hike.
