This is a mentored scramble for Anna Batie.  All inquiries should be directed to her at batieae@gmail.com  .  This trip is now open to all scramblers. 

Plan is to do Palisades Peak then Marcus.  Hopefully some time for a little optional swimming at the end if time and temperature allows.

This will be a fairly moderate paced trip. It's a good mix of on-trail and off-trail scrambling. Appropriate for students seeking out a graduation rock scramble.
