Alpine Scramble - Bean Peak & Volcanic Neck

This is a fun rock scramble with the potential route of Bean Peak, Devils Head and then Volcanic Neck (which can be bypassed if desired). For more fun, we can pass over Bean twice.

We will meet at the Bean Creek TH at 7:30 am to begin this scramble.  I will  send out an email the week before the trip with info for those wanting to carpool.  I will be at the Issaquah Transit Center about 6 am that day and can haul four people total.  Note that those not wanting to summit Volcanic Neck can bypass this option.
