Grouse Ascent 2015 No. 7

15 07 2015

Route: Grouse Grind

Time: 1:17:46

Number 2 offspring wanted to do the Grind this week instead of our usual BCMC. I was 22 minutes faster than last week’s BCMC time, but I have to say that the Grind was nowhere near as busy as I expected and the recent humidity had been solved by the recent – if brief – rain.

That makes 38 recorded ascents for a total of 32,414 metres. Only 2 more to go for Mt. Aconcogua 🙂

Here’s the whole list:

  1. Mt. Kosciusko, Australia – 7300 feet, 2228 metres – 3 grinds
  2. Vinson Massif, Antactica – 16050 feet, 4892 metres – 6 grinds but need 9 total ( 3 from No.1 above plus the 6 for Vinson)
  3. Mt. Elbrus, Europe – 18510 feet, 5642 metres – 7 grinds, 16 total
  4. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa – 19341 feet, 5895 metres – 7 grinds, 23 total
  5. Mt. McKinley, North America – 20320 feet, 6194 metres – 8 grinds, 31 total
  6. Mt. Aconcogua, South America – 22841 feet, 6961 metres – 9 grinds, 40 total
  7. Mt. Everest, Asia – 29029 feet, 8848 metres – 11 grinds, 51 total

Thanks for saying so. As I look at the times scrolling over the results screen, I try and remind myself that it’s not about competing with others, or even the clock… it’s about the personal challenge. The Grind is barely even a hike now – it is a fitness programme! :). If you treat it like a hike and stop to admire the brief views through the trees, someone will barge you out of the way!
