It's been a while since I've hosted something, and with summer nearing, I thought it would be a good time to host a meetup event for the Grouse Grind!
About the Grind:
For those who are unfamiliar with the Grouse Grind, it's a 2.9 km hike up Grouse Mountain gaining about 700 m vertical in the process - so it's a rather steep climb up. Some may say it's torture, but at the end of it, there's a very rewarding and accomplishing feeling that you get!
Average Times and Fitness Level Information:
The average time is about 1:30 for completion and this will vary quite a bit depending on fitness level and if you have experience on this hike. Anyone is welcome to join on this hike up, but to save yourself some trouble, be prepared with proper exercising clothing plus hydration is very important. Furthermore, be prepared for something that is quite cardiovascular and physically demanding.
We will be meeting at 10 am on the specified date and will be starting ASAP. For this hike you may either go up solo or with others from the group - either way we will be meeting at the top and we will hang out there for a while. Afterwards, we will most likely take the gondola down - the cost of this is $10 (no cost for going up the Grind).
This event will depend on the weather so the date may be subject to change should there be significant rainfall. Stay tuned for further details. If everything goes well, this could be a repeating ESV event in the near future!
