Grouse Grind and Panorama Ridge - May 20
 
Woke up this morning with lots of energy so headed off to the Grouse Grind for a warm up at 7:00am. Wanted to break the Season Record of 36:47 (my best time last year was 33:46) but only managed to get 37:30 which still put me first for today and second for the season so far. I thought I'd easily do it after all the winter hiking but I guess it's a conditioning thing. After that drove home packed and headed off to Rubble Creek to do Panorama Ridge. I knew that it would be snowing and that it would be a whiteout at the top (which it was) but I really just went for the exercise. Took me about 3 hours and I didn't put on microspikes or snowshoes. I wasn't able to make the final peak before you summit because I couldn't see anything and my tracks that I had been following from Tuesday's trip were covered up with new snow. There are two steep edges on either side so I wasn't going to chance it. I had my GPS but the margin of error on either side is too great for a narrow path. Not much for photos given the conditons.

Do you have to be a pass-holder to get your time displayed like that? I'm suprised you would buy a pass for Grouse with all the other hiking you do if that is the case.

With the fast and long hikes you post all the time, it's interesting to see how that translates to the grouse grind.

My best time was 41:20, 13 seconds faster than my best sun run time.

No grouse grind photo set?

Then it would have taken him 37:31.

That's never happened to me but kudos to you; you covered a lot of ground.

Oh the Grouse Grind. A wonderful way to measure just how fat and out of shape you got over winter. You did a good job! After 6 months of shin splits I'll be happy with anything under an hour when I attempt it this weekend.

I also had a similar trip up Panorama last year. White-out, GPS, and the only indicator of my location being a dot on a screen with steep slopes on either side. I made the same call.

Ya, 37:30 is fast, but I assumed he would be in the low 30's or faster. Just wait though, by summers' end he'll be under 30. My best was 36:36, but that was 8-9 years ago. I haven't done it in a few years, but I would bet I'm in the high 40's now. : (

You LOVE Panorama Ridge don't you? I'm going to be up there with a bunch of youths first week of July. If you are going again soon, maybe we'll bump into each other!

And thanks for your reports... really helpful!
