Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Bring the complete gear list for an alpine snow scramble day trip, including helmet, ice axe, crampons, and gaiters. We will be in the snow a lot practicing self arrest and glissading, so good waterproof  and insulating layers are important, as are extra gloves/mittens. Bring enough food and water for a full day out.
