Ascent Trip Report

Started at Bean Creek TH and took Beverly Creek trail to Fourth Creek Pass. Up Bill's Peak using standard Southeast face route, 1 hr from pass to summit. Hard early morning snow warranted crampons once past the initial 300ft of scree. Descended the same route and traversed on snow under Mary's and Bean to the ridge between Volcanic Neck and Bean Peak. Ascended Volcanic Neck via standard Northeast gullies. Some snow in first gully but easy to get around. Solid Rock. 2 hours from Bill's summit to Volcanic Neck summit. Dropped down into snow filled basin North of Earl Peak and traversed at 6000ft towards the next basin of Stafford Creek. After ascending the ridge, I found the trail and crowds headed up to Navaho Peak, which I gladly followed on class 2 terrain with patches of snow. Tagged the summit rock and descended the Southeast ridge to the bench at 6500ft and dropped into the Etienne Creek basin via a hole in the waning cornice. Worked my way to the Three Brothers summit via class 2 terrain on the west ridge. Tagged Three Brothers summit 8.5 hours after leaving Bean Creek TH. Retraced route to 6500ft bench and traversed below Navaho Peak to the trail at Navaho Pass. Exited via Stafford Creek trail by running the flat parts and walking the steep parts. Lots of water on the trail. Britt was waiting with Goldfish crackers and water at the TH.
