Sat standing near the summit of Crown Mountain with the Hanes Valley in the background.  The detached rock formation over his right shoulder is "The Camel."  While this is primarily a great hiking destination, there are a number of rock routes on the camel as well as a long one called "The Widowmaker Arete" coming up from Hanes Valley.  This is climbing that is technically accessible by public transit from anywhere in Vancouver since you can get to the base of Grouse Mountain by bus, take the tram up, and then hike the two or three hours to Crown Mountain.
