The Everett Branch of the Mountaineers offers an Alpine Scrambling Course each year, usually beginning in early March.  The course description on the club's website reads as follows:
"The Everett Mountaineers Alpine Scrambling Course provides instruction on how to travel safely off-trail and scramble to mountain summits. Most Northwest mountain summits are accessible by scramble routes. Scrambles are typically strenuous, and usually involve off-trail travel over rock, snow, or brush.  The scramble course provides a program of instruction about proper equipment, clothing, navigation, route-finding, avalanche avoidance, weather awareness, rock and off-trail scrambling, wilderness ethics, snow travel, ice axe arrest, and glissade techniques. The course goal is to teach the skills necessary to scramble enjoyably while minimizing risk."
This one day field trip is the second of four required field trips.
