sabaA local Realtor made good on a promise to climb Grouse Mountain for charity. Sebastian Albrecht climbed the Grouse Grind 14 times in one day, beating his personal best of 13 from last year. It’s the equivalent of climbing 12,000 meters straight up.

News1130 chatted with Albrecht after his amazing journey. So how was he feeling after hours of Mother Nature’s stair-master?

Albrecht: “Legs are okay actually, feeling a bit nauseous but other than that pretty good.”What was the hardest part about getting up 14 times?Albrecht: “Pretty much everything after number six.”

His trek began at 6:30 a.m. Monday and wrapped up shortly after 11 p.m. A torrential downpour also tried to slow him down, but he says a group of 50 school kids were on hand to cheer him on. Money raised for his event went towards the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Good job, another generous Canadian!
