Mentored scramble for leader-in-training Chris Pribbernow.

A short but fun evening rock scramble up the southern face of Little Si, then hiking out the hiking trail. Some moves along this route can me more challenging in the T4 rating and can be slick or mossy, but overall the exposure is minimal and any exposure is brief.  This is a very convenient rock scramble for students who need that graduation credit!

This is an evening scramble that will finish well after sunset. We will want to make quick work of the short trail approach to the scramble route to ensure we have as much time as possible to enjoy the scramble before dark. Be sure to have a headlamp, as well as extra batteries compatible for your headlamp!
