"By Pither’s calculations, he burned about 11,000 calories yesterday as he hiked almost 50 kilometres up and down the mountain. The average daily caloric intake required for a male his age is between 2,500 and 3,000."

Here's a photo of "The Grouse Grind" in British Columbia. Here are the stats on this hill climb:
