Crown Mountain

Difficulty: Very Challenging

Terrain: Technical and Steep climbing – scrambling required

Distance: 9.8km From The Chalet not the base/entrance to the Grind.

Gain: 765m (some websites only say around 350m and don’t account for the second steep incline in this route (or way back) – this figure is what I recorded.)  It doesn’t include the grind either.

Time: 5-7hrs

Trail Running: Experienced/Advanced

Views: Very nice, Vancouver and surrounding areas visible

Top Essentials Required: 1-11


Tough hike with some tricky scrambling over rock edges. Close to a climbing grade. Shoes with good grip essential. Take plenty of hydration. Great view at the top.
