Mount Crickmer from the East
Crickmer is a rocky knoll, almost reaching alpine, crowning the ridge between Stave and Alouette Lakes. North of Crickmer the ridge falls away to a small pass between the head of Alouette Lake and where the Alouette Powerhouse on Stave Lake is; in this area are Florence and Morgan Lakes and beyond to the north is a ridge leading to the south flank of Mount Robie Reid. The summit is high enough to have a complete view over the uplands of Mission District to the Canadian Cascades, Mt. Baker etc. You can also see north to Robie Reid and across to the Golden Ears. The ridge west of the peak and upper Kearsley Creek is called Schedel Ridge, the highest summit of which is 1189m (49:18:59-122:23:43). To the immediate south of this area is series of terraces of relatively flat upland with many small lakes; this area can also be reached via roads from the powerline roads north of Rolley Lake and from roads out of northeastern Maple Ridge.

Name Notes: Mount Crickmer was named in 1859 after Rev. W. Burton Crickmer, the Anglican clergyman in Fort Langley. This naming was forgotten for nearly a century until 1957, when mention of it was deciphered from a sketch in his diary, which is in the Vancouver City Archives. Since no other name had been applied to this peak, the old name was restored - adapted from the Akriggs' "British Columbia Placenames"
