Luckily, you don't need to practice. Class 3 practice was also known as childhood; I've seen plenty of grade-school children on top of Class 3 summits. It has no technical component, and is much over-hyped by certain people on the interwebs. Class 4 and above are a different story. That being said, I still encourage you to seek out Class 3 hikes, because they're the most fun you can have with your clothes on. Once you get above Class 2, you're basically going off trail, so find any old rocky section of terrain and have at it.xthine wrote:This summer I am hoping to do a 14er with a class 3 section to the summit, so interested in finding hikes here in northern AZ that have class 3 sections/stretches. This will be my first class 3 14er, I've been on one with a class 3 move, but not a long section. I have not been able to find any practice hikes in the area, the longer the class 3 section the better, more practice.
