*** Please answer the RSVP questions and sign up for the waitlist. If you didn't get the questions, please message me with the answers (see questions below). No guests please!*** Questions: 1) Please list three scrambles that you have done of similar nature ( Moderate or Difficult) 2) Can you drive and take others (how many)? Please answer all questions. I will only add people based on their answers to these questions.

Tower is rated moderate scramble as per Kane's book. There are two approaches listed in Kane's book we'll decide which one to take closer to the data. We move at a steady moderate pace, with only a few small hydration breaks, plus a break at the summit. More information on the scramble see following links and read about it in Kane's book. It's completely your responsibility to familiarize yourself about the scramble as much as possible before you sign up.
