Teanaway Peak, 6779' - 7 mi., 3300' gain, S3/T4, map will be provided

This is a more interesting and challenging variation of the standard trip. We'll ascend Teanaway via a rock couloir on its SW face. After waving at the Experience FT scramblers to the SE on Mary's and Judy's Peaks we'll work our way down Teanaway's SE face to the saddle. If there's interest we can then hike up the easy ridge to tag Iron Peak's top for good measure.

This would be a good trip for ambitious and fit students who felt very comfortable on the Rock Field Trip and who might like a warm-up for Sunday's Experience FT and satisfy their Alpine Scramble Course Rock Summit requirement at the same time.

Instructors who would like to come over early and attend the BBQ prior to teaching on Sunday are particularly welcome.
