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 crevassed glaciers.

Graduating this course requires the completion of all workshops and fieldtrips listed below, completing 3 scramble trips, and acquiring the Navigation and First Aid badges.
