I'm seeing a lot of T5 scrambles being listed with having summitted a previous T5 as a pre-requisite. Well, here's a T5 with no pre-requisite that will qualify you for those other T5s! The leader has led this most years, including 2012, as one of the peak options for the Teanaway/Experience FT and every student participant has successfully summitted. I know the route intimately and can help you get up and down this peak! However, please use some common sense. You must be in good condition to summit these two peaks (Bean is one of the other standard Teanaway FT peaks). You can get Rock credit even if you only summit Bean (assuming I can make suitable arrangements to leave you on Bean, which may require one additional person to be willing to stay there), but you won't get T5 credit, and you will miss out on the fun and the point. So, please be in reasonably decent condition. And please don't sign up if you know or should know that you have major issues with exposure: for example, if you had a serious problem with the downclimb at the Rock FT. While I have designated this an Instructional event, that doesn't mean that it's only limited to students -- but grads, please do allow several students to sign up before jumping on the trip please. Also, I would welcome another leader instructor signing up, if someone wants to help out! I'll be car camping at Beverly (or somewhere nearby) on Friday night: if you want to do the same and see my grey/silver PT Cruiser, stop by and share my campfire! (But don't try to call/email me Friday night...) The perfect chance to get your starter T5 out of the way!
