Meeting place and time

Further details about this Conditioning Hike will be forthcoming in an email sometime the week before the activity, including information about the exact trail and trail-head that will be used.

Meeting Time: We will start moving at 8:00 a.m., so please arrive about 15 minutes earlier to give you time to boot up and go through a short introduction, gear check, and route discussion.

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.
