The Everett Alpine Scrambling course is a comprehensive 12 week course that teaches important aspects of mountain travel including navigation, compass skills, clothing and gear selection, off-trail travel, snow travel, conditioning, ice axe skills, and use of altimeter. Alpine Scrambling involves off-trail travel to reach non-technical rock and snow summits. It does not involve technical, roped climbing. You can use the skills acquired in this course to reach hundreds of peaks in the Cascades and Olympics. This course will also give you the skills to help you continue on to the technical climbing course if you want more challenge on exposed terrain. Completing First Aid classes taught by RMI are a required part of the course. These classes will be offered several time during the year and can usually be completed during the 12 week course. Early registration is recommended.
