Do The Urban Grind in Vancouver

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Grouse Grind is closed for the season so if you’re looking for an after-work workout that involves climbing hundreds of meters in the air, with a reward of having a unique view from a Vancouver attraction at the top, then the Urban Grind is for you!

The Urban Grind

While it can’t replace trails that twist between evergreens, you can climb up 553 feet at Harbour Centre and check out the view from the Vancouver Lookout at the top when you do the Urban Grind.

Every Tuesday in March Vancouverites are invited to climb the stairs to the top of the iconic Vancouver Lookout, where you will be met with a beer, live DJ, and 360º aerial views. New this year, Shawn Adair, a Powerlifting and Calisthenics Strength Coach, is on board to lead a stretch and climb and provide techniques to our climbers. He will be leading a climb at 4:00pm each Tuesday.

  • Where: Start in the Harbour Centre lobby 555 West Hastings St)
  • When: Every Tuesday in March (1, 8, 15, 22, 29) from 4:00pm to 6:00pm
  • Admission: $5 (includes unlimited circuits between 4:00pm to 6:00pm)
    Includes one beer and DJ entertainment.
    Climbers will also receive a $5 Harbour Centre Food Court voucher.
