This high alpine bowl with a chute in the middle makes for a fun descent. It offers a mix of different kinds of terrain. The approach begins at the Beehive parking lot and follows the popular skin route up to the ridge between beehive basin and bear basin. From here you follow the ridgeline to the summit. The descent is above tree line in a nice open alpine bowl with the well known “Buttcrack Chute” right in the middle. The run down to your car has a variety of terrain with lots of trees. The trailhead parking can be crowded so get an early start.
