There are two summits, North and South with incredible views. We took the Old Strachan trail back down past the T-33 plane wreckage. This was pretty overgrown and took a lot longer than we thought as it heads past the Cypress Bowl car park and then connects to the Baden Powell to head back down. 1:40 to summits and 3:00 back down.

Not a bad hike for something short & quick. We were socked in with some welcomed rain throughout so no rewarding views from the top.
Following the loop tracks was better than a back and forth but make sure you actually go to the top as the track we followed stopped at the saddle.

The deep snow still remaining at the beginning of June upgraded this hike from moderate to difficult. The climb via Christmas Gully was challenging but doable. We climbed both summits and I learned a thing or two about snow travel on steep difficult terrain. it was great and I would love to do it again in the summer. Would love to the see the mountain when not covered in snow.

Nice short spin. 2.5 hours round trip for us at an easy pace. For sure it's a steep start with constant elevation to the top. Good spot for ski lovers as well, the tracks cross most of the slopes and under the lifts. The track is mainly shally which makes it tricky coming down but all round a good up and down for any level.

I liked this hike. Not insanely difficult, but a definite calf burner. I like the steep rocky parts and the steep forested part after leaving the howe sound trail the best. The view at the top is a 360 degree panorama of the ocean (bowen island) to the west, metro vancouver to the south, crown mountain to the east, and the lions to the north. I will do this hike again before the end of summer.
