Crown Mountain from Northeast
Viewed from downtown Vancouver, Crown Mountain looks like a mostly forested peak capped with a rock crown. The true nature of the peak reveals itself from the north, a rarely seen vantage point. The north slopes are made up of long, steep rock faces. A trail from the top of the Grouse Mountain gondola leads to the summit of Crown Mountain via Crown Pass. The lower, western summit, bulky and pyramidal from most of Vancouver, is informally known as "The Sleeping Beauty". The main summit forms "The Pyramid" with the Camel gendarme immediately east and separated by a short steep notch.

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