Have you done anything close to this kind of elevation gain before? How about this year?

Can you do the Grouse Grind in less than an hour?

Are you comfortable moving at a decent pace through boulder fields and loose rock?

Participant Information

18km and 2100m gain. We'll start early to beat the heat/crowds, meeting at the trailhead at 7am. I'm open to an earlier start as well, just didn't want to scare people off. Pace will be a fairly fast hiking pace. The Scrambles book gives an ascent time of 5.5-9hrs and I'm aiming for 5-6hrs up. Definitely stopping for snacks and swims and a long summit loiter if its not cloudy. This trip is weather dependent on not being too cloudy or super windy. Lots of off-trail travel, there will be boulder fields etc. I predict the total day length including breaks to be 10-12hrs. The Wedgemount Lake area is not subject to the BC Parks Day Pass system
