Scrambling

Activity

“Scrambling” is a fairly recent term that has a lot of different meanings depending on who you ask. In its mildest forms, scrambling is alpine hiking with the intent of reaching a summit or other significant high point. At its most challenging, scrambling can essentially become free soloing; where one climbs a near-vertical surface without the assistance, or protection, of ropes or anchors. For the purpose of this website, scrambling occupies the grey area between hiking and mountaineering, and in most cases includes sections of hands-on rock climbing.
