This trip is one of a series of 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. These conditioners are also a great way to test out your gear in the field.

This trip is not a scramble and does not count toward graduation. Each student must do one conditioning trip that is listed with the course, and we strongly encourage you to sign up for hikes and other conditioning activities with the Mountaineers.

Specific route details will be provided to participants a few days prior to the trip.  The route will include a short distance on the cable line, then sections of the Tiger Mtn and K-3 trails with a potential small "lollipop loop" to West Tiger 3 and small sections of the WT 3 and Railroad grade trails.

Required Equipment

This is not a scramble, so helmets, ice axes and harnesses are not required.  However, for conditioning purposes it is recommended that you carry all the gear you will be taking on a scramble trip. 

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

This is a great time to test our the boots you are planning to use during the scramble course for fit and comfort. If you do not have those boots yet sturdy hiking boots will suffice for now.
