Description:

This weekend is looking great and the trip agenda is almost as bare as the North Shore mountains, so let's give Mount Fromme a go!

The plan is to meet around 8:30 at Waterfront Skytrain station in time to catch the 8:46 SeaBus, get on the 230 getting off at Braemar Road and St Georges Ave, walking to the trailhead for 10:00. Vancouver Trails suggests 5 hours, if we choose to extend our lunch I think we could say we'll be back at the trailhead for 4 or so. 

Please make sure to bring:

Hiking boots, 2 liters of water, lunch, a snack or two, and insulation (it could be chilly at the top, please ensure you can stay warm, we may even encounter snow)

If in doubt consult the day trip gear list (headlamp is always good practice to have on hand), or email me.

 

Please let me know (by signing up as "actually going") by Friday evening so I know how many, and who, to expect as well if you will meet us at the trailhead or at Waterfront.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me by email, or text.
