Teanaway Ridge and Iron Bear Mountain - 11.5.2014

Directions from the Liberty Cafe on Hwy 97 to the trailhead for Iron Bear Mountain.
rodman's GPS track for our trip to Teanaway Ridge and Iron Bear Mountain... 11 miles roundtrip, gaining 3084 feet of elevation.
The trailhead is at the end of FS-9714 (~3640').
After hiking ~2 miles we reached a pass (`4500') that separates the Iron Creek drainage from the Bear Creek drainage. We will go left (south) and hike ~2 miles to Point 4943 on Teanaway Ridge.
For the most part, Point 4943 is a treed summit.
We have traced our steps back along Teanaway Ridge to the divide that separates Iron and Bear Creeks... and are now heading for Iron Bear Mountain on the left.
After hiking a mile or so from the Iron/Bear divide we are nearing the Iron Bear summit.
