This is my second time doing this loop. It's a great one worth repeating.

I mainly wanted to do it to try Volcanic Neck again. Failed on my first try, failed on my second...I don't know if I want to try again.

The route up Volcanic Neck is pretty obvious but the rock is loose. I followed Carla the whole way up taking snapshots of her progress. Occasionally I could hard small rocks falling.

Our route had us going up Bean Creek Basin, up Bean Peak, then following the ridge towards Earl Pk a bit before dropping down and around to get to Volcanic Neck. Then we hiked out around the north side of Bean Peak via the Beverly Creek Trail.

Awesome loop trip.
