Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Alpine Scrambling is a strenuous activity involving off-trail travel to reach rock and snow summits following routes that do not ordinarily require ropes for protection. It does not involve glacier travel, roped climbing, or rappelling.

The Everett Alpine Scrambling Course is a comprehensive 12-week program that teaches the skills necessary to reach many Cascade and Olympic summits safely. We cover clothing and equipment, off-trail travel (on snow, rock, and mixed terrain), up-climbing, down-climbing, ice-ax arrest, self-belay, glissading, avalanche awareness, mountain weather, trip planning and emergency preparedness.

Attendance at all lectures and field trips is required for graduation.
