  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,300 ft

Beverly Creek TH - same as Experience FT - at 8:00 AM.

Returning to Bean two weeks after the field trip will provide us with less snow and more exposed rock. We'll have plenty of time to practice technique on Bean's "sticky" rock playground, do some summit lounging, and enjoy the spectacular view.

Successful completion of this trip will satisfy your Experience FT Rock requirement and count as one of your three scrambles required for graduation from the course.
