I tried to do a Hanes Traverse a couple months ago but there was too much snow so I wimped out. By now the snow should be manageable or negligible, Lynn Creek should be easily crossed, and I need a one-day trip.
My plan is to park a car at Lynn Park, take the bus back to the Grouse Skyride, ride it up, mingle with the tourists for maybe 5 minutes, then set off on the long ridge that heads past Goat Mt and down the Hanes Valley, cross Lynn Creek, and then go down Lynn Valley, retrieve the car, and go home. This is a fair distance, but the way I have described it, mostly downhill.
Transportation: Both ends are TranSlink accessible. The SkyRide is expensive if you go clockwise as I am proposing, and even if you do the trip counterclockwise you have to pay $10 to go down the Skyride. Some people might be tough enough to do the Grind, then the Traverse, but I will be riding up on the lift because I have a special pass (for me only, alas).
If this sounds good to you, email me, or post on the notice board. I'm likely going even if I can't get a large group to come with us. Weather looks good, some clouds, not too hot, no rain. Boots, lunch. Warning, bugs maybe!
