 This all day 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 Teanaway area. There is always plenty of snow and rock to practice your steep snow, self-arrest, glissading, rock scrambling, and navigation skills.
