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

 This route is incredible. Killer tech climb. If you’re an xc nerd with no leg hair this is the most fun you’ll have on the mountain. I can’t stay away. In my nightmares I’m being strangled by the root creature that lives on d’yer mak’er.

If you can do this in under 35 mins you’re a god

 This is in amazing condition right now. Go ride it! They’ve done a ton of work making it a little less punchy.

 This just got a lot easier. Lots of work in the past month or two it looks like. The root road climb has been pretty much neutralized. I'm not sure if I'm happy or disappointed!

Trail day worked just below junction with Pennzoil and Lower Oilcan. Added new grade reversal to divert water off trail. Built rock retaining wall to raise trail bed in eroded section and allow water to run beside trail until it can disperse. Extended existing ditch higher up trail. Repaired trail tread with mineral soil. New dirt is wet and very muddy.
