Scrambling

Scrambling is one of the great recreations of the Long Distance backpacker.

Once you handle the weight, high angle climbs, and the altitude, it is now time to consider packing an extra day's food for each section to climb a nearby mountain, explore some lakes in a hanging valley, climb up to a gap in the Sierra Crest Line to see what's on the other side, or just check out the full extent of the valley or mountain where you are camped.
