Just did it for second time. Did it Friday 1:24. Hated it so much I decided to buy a season pass on the way down. Typing this waiting for the gondola, 1:21. Damn my time sucks compared to you guys, but, I will demolish my time. Hoping for sub 70 minutes.

Man, I miss doing the Grouse Grind. Haven't gone since I finished school up at Capilano University (was still just a college back then)... so twelve years now. Used to go every couple days after class and managed to finally hit a best of 41:xx.

Now I'm pretty sure I'll be at the one and a half hour mark.

I refuse to go after 8am on weekend or holidays Lol.

BTW, is the small gravel parking lot (right a few steps below the trail enterance) free or pay parking? I don't see a machine so I haven't paid so far.

Does anyone get lower back pain/strain while doing the grind? I've been getting it, and i try to stay more upright most of the time, but it sitll hurts. Hurts a lot more when i'm leaning forward too. Any tips would help.

what kind of shoes are you wearing?
my back hurt the first grind, but I was using heavy hiking shoes.
I switched to lightweight running shoes and it feels much much better!

they get super dirty tough lol
I hit a 48.53 this morning! pb!

Did my first trek up last week in over 2 years. Managed a 48:xx. At least better than my first attempt years back (2 hrs+)...

Hopefully with some training I will get it down to 40 mins or so.

You should try wearing simple runners like Nike dual fusions or Nike free runs they actually will do the job in the dry condition i have tried it myself
