Open Trips

 

MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE RATING SYSTEM

 

Green Circle — Easier

The actual outdoor trip may be shorter or less intense and will likely involve “combination” activities. For example, we may do yoga before or after a flatwater canoe trip. We might stretch before or after a hike.

 

 Blue Square — Moderate

These are traditional open trips. These trips typically last 4-6 hours. They will continue to represent the bulk of our events.

 

Black Diamond — Harder

The outdoor trip component may be longer (6-8 hours) or it may involve more intense physical activity. Examples may be climbing Mt. LeConte or one of our fitness events.

 

It is possible for any of our events to be adapted to fit any of these categories. For example, the Camp 4 Climbing Cave would typically be considered a moderate activity. But, if students utilized one of our climbing cave workouts, it could be considered a harder activity.
