Conditioning Hikes

Field trip: Alpine Scrambling Course

Conditioning Hikes - West Tiger Mountain No. 3 Cable Line

Scramble conditioning hike

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 3.2 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,100 ft
  • Pace: steady, but not fast

Time 10:00am.  Location TBD

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.

Plan for this trip is to go up the Cable Line trail, and down the standard West Tiger 3 trail.  Current weather/ trail conditions may require a change in destination.

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

This is not a scramble, so helmets, ice axes and harnesses are not required however for conditioning you should carry all the gear you will be taking on a scramble trip. This includes helmet, ice axe and hasty harness.

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.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND TREKKING POLES AND MICROSPIKES OR OTHER EQUIVALENT TRACTION DEVICES.
