Scrambling

The term “scrambling” implies that you have to use your hands in order to reach your destination. Below is a list of scrambles I’ve done. Included are Class 2+ (hands used for balance), Class 3 (hands used for climbing, minimal exposure to falling), Class 3+ (hands used for climbing, some exposure to falling that could really mess you up), and Class 4 (hands used for climbing, some exposure to falling that would likely kill you). See my Peak List for class ratings of each peak. Click on any of the description links for a trip report and photos.
