Alpine scrambling is a form of nontechnical mountaineering that falls somewhere between high altitude hiking and rock climbing. Ropes and other aids typically are not needed. This new, fully revised second edition features 85 routes, including 25 all-new scrambles not in the first edition, as well as a new chapter covering five high-alpine traverses in the North Cascades.

All routes are displayed on maps, many of which indicate alternative routes to the primary way up. Keep stats? Then you’ll also appreciate the all-new “scramble statistics” table.
