Harrison Grind: Not That Kind of Grind

I never did understand the popularity of the Grouse Grind... and so it was that we set out to the Harrison Grind to find out why it was named after the Grouse Grind (TM).

cool. good call on skipping Campbell Lake, it's nothing special.

The boulders under the power lines near the start have been scrubbed by climbers, if anyone's interested in bouldering.

Thanks for sharing. Never have been a fan of the grind myself either.

Simple answer to that. TRAINING, and CONDITIONING! Sure you can goto the gym with a pack and do a stair climber to prepare you for 8hr mountain trips, 10hr mountain trips, 12hr mountain trips. Or go do the grind, use your pass and save your knees with the tram down. I can't speak for others bu that's my opinion.

I suspect another popular one is a gauge to see where ones fitness level is at amongst any and everyone of their friends that they know who has done it.

Thanks Moot, I went up there today for the first time. More traffic than I'm used to/like but all in all a nice little hike :)
