The Scrambles Leadership course assists students in developing leadership, instructional, and advance scrambling skills. Students explore and practice both: Hard skills like: planning a trip, instructing on ice axe, snow travel, rappelling, belaying, emergency situations. Soft skills like: group dynamics, situational risk. Upon completing the course, students will develop skills on how to instruct students and lead non-technical (unroped) climbs. This is a course intended for Alpine Scrambles and Basic Climbing graduates who want to gain leadership and foundational skills, as a step towards leading Scrambles, or continuing on to a higher level of climbing. Second-year Scrambles students are welcome to the program, subject to Committee approval. Leadership is a skill that can be developed and nurtured. Hands on experience through instructing at Scrambles Field Trips and assisting/leading on Scrambles (with the support of a Leader-Mentors) provides students with an environment to develop and explore their leadership style. Additionally, students can observe and learn from the leadership style of their fellow students and mentors. The course consists of two lectures and two field trips. Classes are held at the Tacoma Branch clubhouse (2302 N 30th Street) and start at 7 p.m. Students are expected to be in good physical condition when attending field trips. Each field trip is a full day of learning, practicing, and having fun. In addition to attending all the required classes and field trips, course participants are required to: Instruct at two Scrambles' field trips. One must be a snow field trip and one must be a rock field trip. Assist lead on two Scramble Climbs. Students may substitute the leading of a conditioner in place of one assisted climb. Lead one Scrambles Climb (with the support of a Scramble Leader-Mentor) Valid/Current Mountaineering Orient First Aid (MOFA) card. A Scrambles Leadership course fee includes a course manual. Additionally, there will be required reading from “Freedom of the Hills - 7th Edition”, which maybe an additional cost if you do not have access to the book. Consider the benefits of leadership training beyond your usual outdoor activities. Whether it's in the mountains, in the classroom, at the office or just around home, leadership training can help each of us grow.
