Required Equipment

Required Equipment

This is not a scramble, so helmets, ice axes and harnesses are not required - however you should carry all the gear you will be taking on a scramble trip to beef up your conditioning. 

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 out mountaineering 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.
