Difficulty: Very Challenging
Terrain: Technical and Steep climbing – scrambling required
Distance: 9.8km From The Chalet not the base/entrance to the Grind.
Gain: 765m (some websites only say around 350m and don’t account for the second steep incline in this route (or way back) – this figure is what I recorded.) It doesn’t include the grind either.
Trail Running: Experienced/Advanced
Views: Very nice, Vancouver and surrounding areas visible
Top Essentials Required: 1-11
Tough hike with some tricky scrambling over rock edges. Close to a climbing grade. Shoes with good grip essential. Take plenty of hydration. Great view at the top.
