Collection of new climbing connectors and some old trail creating a Fromme west side access climbing route. Don't let the green & blue difficulty ratings of a lot of the trail sections fool you, this is a tough climb. The trail ratings are mostly their downhill rating. This is a physically demanding climb that gets more challenging the further you go.

Thanks to the efforts of our community, the Climbing Route on Fromme is now open to the mid point on Executioner. This will complete Phase 3 of the route. Phase 3 has twinned sections of Dreamweaver for directional use and re-aligned the old Executioner exit to utilize as climbing access.

Work will begin on Phase 4, 5 & 6 with hopes to complete in 2016 to provide west side access to the 6th switchback utilizing existing routes by bringing them to a sustainable standard. The NSMBA heartily thanks all of the volunteers, lead builders and groups who provided support to get the route opened to this point including: Arc'teryx, MEC, Rocky Mountain Bicycles, BC Bike Race
Lead Builders: Irish Pete, Pat Podolski, Digger, Brent Hillier, Owen Thomas, Chris Barker, Tom Hudson, Randy Konrad

Another redo. Some rooty fun, if there's such a thing. Raw Footage is the signature. This trail is in good shape, as shown.

This is a fun descent towards the entrance of Mt Fromme on the section of Baden Powell that takes you out if you are heading back to the Water...
