What is scrambling?
Scrambling is hiking taken to the next level. It's something old climbers and hikers that are climbing-curious do. It combines what you know from hiking with skills taken from mountaineering for off-trail travel over snow and rocks. Reaching the summit is the ultimate objective. Generally scrambling is considered strenuous and physically demanding, often using route-finding skills and the use of your hands to keep balance as you “scramble” over rocks. Unlike mountaineering or rock climbing it does not require glacial travel. This means no technical gear such as rope, protection, or belay skills are needed.
