Fromme For Sale

Words Morgan Taylor
Date May 23, 2013

The 6th switchback could be yours in this once of a lifetime opportunity…

Located at the top of Mt. Fromme’s western flank, this stellar piece of dirt boasts a gravel road on both sides and no views whatsoever. While there was an abandonded pickup truck at this location just a few years ago, the area has cleaned up nicely since and it currently stands as a true wilderness gem.

Dangerous Dan’s iconic Ridiculator nearly drops right in to the property at just over 600 metres above sea level; the possibilities are literally endless on this PRO-zoned piece of mountain bike history. Think of it this way: when you live at the top of Executioner, who’s boss?


This could be your back yard.

You may be more familiar with the road cycling world’s use of the all-caps PRO designation, but the District of North Vancouver has its own definition. We take Parks, Recreation, and Open Space to mean mountain bike = YES.

Listed nearby amenities include recreation and ski hill. By recreation they mean your own pumptrack and as for ski hill… well, you’ll be snowed in for a couple months every winter. Time to put those dreams about living off-grid into reality.

In a cabin this sounds fine and dandy, but you’ll be in a tent. Why? Well, this triangular nugget of wooded perfection doesn’t allow structures of any type – but there’s always potential to apply for a re-zone, right?


The drawings are shoddy but the dirt is real.

Heading westward you have access to the boot-gnarled Peer Gynt trail, a name that means “crooked old man” in ancient Swedish. Due south lands you on Executioner, a historic line that has recently been realigned with sustainability in mind.

Set up a toll booth on these gems and you’ll have a nickel for every time someone rides the tiny bridge on Bitches Brew that should have been dead a long time ago but is somehow in great shape.


This property boasts the biggest back yard in North Vancouver.

We need to build a clubhouse on this land. A great chance for investment at a very affordable 99K. Who’s going to start the kickstarter fund?

There’s no place like Fromme. What’s your bid?

I'll go along with Duncan's idea. 🙂

We should raise money and buy it for Digger …

NSMBA? I'm in for a couple grand.

There also used to be a lot for sale at the bottom. And there are 2 on Seymour.

The downside to building a cabin there is that poacher douchebags will constantly reopen it and cuttie the corners.

I'm game to own a portion of that land. I'd put in a grand or two.

Check the PRO zoning document on the DNV site, as a park a caretakers residence is allowed. Just have to keep it less than 40 feet tall.
