NF Teanaway River Rd is driveable (Jeep 4WD) to within 1 mile of the Beverly Turnpike/Bean Creek TH (~3200'). Ascended left (N) side of Earl's W face (7036') and descended the prominent rib on the S side of same face. Excellent corn. Partly sunny/cloudy with a light snow shower. Stable. 3800vf.

Thanks for the report. I am sure there are more folks like me wondering how the access back there is coming along. How about the snow pack? Any guesses on how long it will last?

And if you hiked up into Bean Creek Basin to access Earl, how low down can you start/end skiing? Near the stream crossing, or way higher?

Hiked ~1 mile to the bridge at the trailhead. Continuous snow just beyond the Bean Creek/Beverly Turnpike trail split. Skinned the rest. No creek crossing as creek is bridged by avalanche debris (but this will go fast).

Tom, I would recommend getting Earl in the next week or two. Snow is thin in the woods on the approach.
