This trip is one of a series of optional hikes for scramble course students to work on their conditioning, explore the foothills peaks and become better acquainted with the other students and scramble community members.

This trip is not a scramble, does not count toward graduation and is  optional. 

The leader(s) are scramble course graduates or instructors, but not necessarily official scramble leaders.  Sign-up is limited to students from the current year's scramble course.

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

This is not a scramble, so helmets, ice axes and harnesses are not required but should be carried on this conditioner. You will be required to carry this gear on course field trips and scramble trips so it makes sense to carry the gear on a conditioner.

Everything else you would bring on a regular scramble course is required including the 10 essentials, rain gear and extra clothes.

Good quality hiking boots are required, but they don't have to be scramble/mountaineering boots for the conditioning hikes. However, scramble/mountaineering boots will be required before the course field trips. .
