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 unroped 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 glacier terrain.

The Wilderness Skills course is a pre-requisite.  Alpine Scrambling students will need to attend the Wilderness Skills course in January, prior to the first Alpine Scrambling lecture.

Mountain Oriented First Aid (MOFA) and Navigation are required to graduate.  These can be taken concurrent with Alpine Scrambling.

Alpine Scrambling students are also required to perform a full day of stewardship to graduate from the course. 

Mountaineers Freedom of the hills will be provided as part of your tuition.

We recommend that you not purchase your mountaineering equipment until after the 1st classroom session.
