Experience Field Trip

Field trip: Compressed Alpine Scrambling Course

Experience Field Trip - Bean Peak

Three-day Field trip to practice scrambling skills. The Experience Field Trip will take place on Saturday. We hope to offer scrambles on Friday and Sunday in the area for course students with an option to car camp for the weekend.

  • Strenuous 3, Technical 2
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,300 ft

This field trip takes place in the Bean Creek Basin area of the Cascades north of the town of Cle Elum on I-90.

 Here you will learn and practice the skills taught at the earlier field trips as part of a real live scramble trip up to the summit of one of the many peaks in the area. There is always plenty of snow and rock to practice your steep snow, self-arrest, glissading, rock scrambling, and navigation skills.
