More adventurous than hiking but less extreme than climbing: a guide to Oregon summits for everyone. *Non-technical ascents of popular peaks including Mount Hood, the Sisters, Mount Thielsen, and Mount McLoughlin, as well as lesser-known peaks *GPS waypoints and contour maps *Scramble-finder chart for selection of routes according to length, difficulty, season, and elevation gain Calling all hikers with a yen for high, lonely places: you can bag that peak if you want to. Scrambling is the bridge between hiking and rock climbing. It involves off-trail travel--making your way over rough terrain and sometimes using your hands for balance and safety on nearly vertical rock--but does not require technical climbing gear. These scrambles are generously spread across the state: the Cascades, Klamath Mountains, East Cascades, the Wallowas, Elkhorns, Blue Mountains, the Strawberry Mountains and remote desert ranges. Routes are rated for difficulty and skill level.
