Mount Fromme from the Lynn Valley Trail
Located just east of the Grouse Mountain area above Lynn Creek, this minor forested summit is the home of some large old growth trees (on its eastern flanks) and some challenging mountain bike trails. Fromme is easily climbed from a trail branching off the Grouse Mountain access road (upper Mountain Highway) from the vicinity of the head of Mosquito Creek. Fromme is climbed much less frequently in the summer than are the peaks of the Grouse-Dam-Little Goat-Goat group and can make a good destination to avoid the crowds on sunny summer weekends, if the North Shore is your only possible destination.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
