Write Up:
Crown seen from so many parts of Vancouver making it an enticing destination. First hiking up the Grind and then onwards to pause just before descending to Crown Pass and appraise the view of Crown and Camel. The descent was dry which is a treat, then another pause at the pass to take a peek down towards Hanes creek crossover perhaps for another briefer hike but with much scree. The ascent to Crown is well marked and we paused on the way up to note Crown Buttress. Having lucked out with a blue bird day, at the top we were rewarded with spectacular views in all directions. We relaxed to eat lunch and interact with the Raven couple always awaiting some tasty morsel. Then taking care of our footing on the descent to catch the gondola allowing time for other activities. Thanks to Lorenzo and Ali for their good company. Gillian Palejko
