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.

The Alpine Scrambling course teaches essential techniques of off-trail wilderness travel needed for scaling snow and rock summits. Alpine scrambling may at times involve un-roped movement on and across low or moderately-exposed snow and rock terrain, but does not include roped climbing on high-angle, seriously-exposed technical rock faces, nor does it involve roped travel on crevassed glaciers.

Wilderness Skills, Basic Navigation, and MOFA 1st Aid courses are all required courses to graduate from this course. These courses are all seperate and require seperate registrations. 

When registering for Wilderness Skills enter Promo Code CO15WSKILLS for discount

When registering for Basic Navigation enter Promo Code AS15NAV for discount

Tuition includes a copy of "Freedom of the Hills". We recommend that you not purchase your mountaineering equipment until after the 1st classroom session.
