2nd try for Bean Peak for a special team in the Alpine Scramble Class of 2014.

"Sticky" rock and a multiplicity of difficulty factors, aided by melting snow, should make this even better than it would have been on June 7th. Thanks to Bean's topography, this trip can range from T2 through T5, depending on the group's capabilities. We will instruct and evaluate on the approach.

Precedence given for those in Nina, Jim, and Tom C's group last Saturday.
