Collection of low grade climbing sections to connect existing trails and an old skid road creating a west side climbing route. Don't let the difficulty ratings fool you, this is a tough climb. The trail is sustained uphill with few breaks, often very technical.
It is a physically demanding climb that gets more challenging the higher you go.
Thanks to HUGE efforts from our community, the entire climbing route on Fromme opened officially in late 2015. Ongoing improvements and maintenance will continue into 2017.
The NSMBA heartily thanks all of the volunteers, lead builders and groups who have contributed significant efforts to complete the route opened to this point including: Arc'teryx, MEC, Rocky Mountain Bicycles, BC Bike Race, Deloitte, Knight Piésold & Steed Cycles.
The NSMBA would like to acknowledge the Lead Builders on this project that started with the DNV Trail Crew in 2011: Irish Pete, Pat Podolski, Todd Fiander, Brent Hillier, Owen Thomas, James Healey, Penny Deck, Tom Hudson, Randy Konrad, Gordo McNaughton.
This project would not have been possible without our strong partnership with the District of North Vancouver, inparticular, Trail & Habitat Coordinator Graham Knell (now retired).
