MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE RATING SYSTEM
Green – 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 – Moderate
These are traditional open trips. These trips typically last 4-6 hours. They will continue to represent the bulk of our events.
Grey – 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.
