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. 75 Scrambles in Oregon will take you to some of the same summits that climbers enjoy-but by less extreme routes.These scrambles (short, easy introductory routes and longer, more difficult scrambles) are generously spread across Oregon: the Cascades; Klamath Mountains (SW corner); East Cascades; the Wallowas, Elkhorns, and Blue Mountains (NE); the Strawberry Mountains near John Day; and remote desert ranges (SE corner). Routes are rated for difficulty and skill level. Where nonstandard equipment such as an ice axe, crampons, rope, or helmet are advised, that is noted route by route.Barbara I.
