Details

This is an easy field trip of the Alpine Scrambling Course (Fort Collins). The group will meet in Fort Collins and carpool to the Vedauwoo Climbing area. We will take a short walk into the canyon surrounded by Turtle Rock. Here Senior Instructor Erin Bohler and Assitant Scott Farquhar will discuss with students possible Class 3 scrambles from the canyon floor to the top of Turtle Rock. The group will then pick routes and attempt to scramble up to the summit in two or three locations. For this trip the intent is to climb without the use of rope. However, the instructors will have a "short rope" available in case it is required ..... ok, one of the young/strong participants my be asked to carry it :-)





Recommended gear:

Light mountaineering boots or Approch Shoes

Helmet

Seat harness

Daypack with lunch, snacks, water or drink

Mountain hiking clothing appropriate for the season, altitude, weather. Include rain gear.

Gloves, hat
