Preference to Tacoma branch scramble students through 5/20. 

In addition to scrambling Tahtlum, we will allow time for students to practice ice axe arrest. 

For those interested in a 2nd peak, we will also have the opportunity to scramble Yakima Peak on the other side of 410, adding another 800' of gain for the day, and likely offering rock credit to students.
