As part of the Training and Leadership Committee's activities, we will be leading an aspiring trip leader outing to a front range scramble. We will be heading up a moderately rated scramble and will choose the objective based on the prevailing conditions and weather forecast. The day will see us review trip planning right from the initial planning of the trip to the final goodbyes at the end of the day. As we meet up at the car pool site and then during the actual scramble, we will look at the various aspects of trip leading, engaging in group discussion, scenarios as well as each of us taking the lead throughout the day. This trip is open for those members that are not yet trip leaders and wish to be vetted to lead trips this summer, as well as those that may wish to refresh their skills.
