Brunswick & Seymour (BC), October 2016

A couple late October hikes to the top of Brunswick Mountain and Mount Seymour. The former shares the same starting point as West Lion which I climbed back in October of 2009. From the trailhead in Lions Bay, it is an easy hike along a gravel road and rough logging track that becomes progressively more overgrown. The trail then turns steeply uphill for an unrelenting grind that ends finally at a saddle overlooking a large rock cirque below Brunswick’s precipitous north-facing crags. From here it’s only a short scramble up and to the right to reach the false summit. Somewhat exposed scrambling along a mostly horizontal ridge leads to the true summit and from where one is greeted with excellent views looking out over Howe Sound and an expanse of peaks to the north. Dom, Aga and I enjoyed more great Fall weather and views the following day on top of nearby Mount Seymour. This is arguably the best vantage point from which to behold the full panorama of greater Vancouver and was for us the perfect place to finally scatter the ashes of their dog Dyce who unfortunately passed away several years ago.
