Traversed Earl, Bean, Volcanic Neck, Devils Head, Bean, Judis, Marys, and Bill with Heather Anderson. 13 hours and 40 minutes round-trip.
Route goes through great terrain. Bean Creek Basin, traverse around (or climb over) Bean Peak, and running the ridge past Volcanic Neck all the way out to Devil's Head.
Walked the ridge with Flanders after doing Volcanic Neck. Great end of our trip summit. Descended the scree between this and VN to the rockfields below and then back up the west side of VN to the trail and back to camp in the saddle between Bill's and Mary's peaks before hiking out to beat the incoming storms.
Appropriate to climb this on one of the hottest days that year- along with Bean peak and Volcanic Neck
Part of a 6-Summit amble throughout the Teanaway
Best views of the Stuart range! Rock rolled from underfoot on the trip to the summit. Dislocated finger - ouch!
Great views of the enchantments, feels like you can reach out and touch them
