Bean Creek Basin


Alpine Scramble - Earl Peak

Little jaunt up to visit Earl. Earl Peak is the prominent mountain in front of Mount Stuart as you drive up the Teanaway road. As the highest point in the Bean Basin area and being accessible from many different directions it is worth scrambling many times.
