This is a snow scramble for Olympia Alpine Scramble students who need a snow scramble to fulfill course requirements. Others will be allowed to register after 12:01am on 5/5/24. If you fall in the "others" category and you register before that time, you will be dropped!

This scramble will start at Narada Falls. We will head up the "Narada Wall" and then walk along the Stevens Canyon Rd to Reflection Lakes. We will head up to east side of the Castle and then over to Foss Peak.

Olympia Students -- You may sign up for this scramble after the successful completion of the first snow FT but you will not be allowed to go on the trip unless you have successfully completed both Snow 1 and Snow 2 field trips. You will also not be permitted to go if you have not successfully completed your conditioner.

This trip will go at a moderate pace (about 1,000 ft/hr). This means that we will move fast enough to keep the heart pumping, but not so fast that we cannot talk to each other. We'll take breaks at the 15 minute mark, 1 hour mark, and then hourly after that.
