"Now, I mean to be a match for Grendel, settle the outcome in single combat." (425-426)
Beowulf accepted the call to adventure, or crossed the threshold, by leaving the comfort of his life at home to go fight Grendel.
"Clear proof of this Could be seen in the hand the hero displayed High up near the roof: the whole of Grendel’s Shoulder and arm, his awesome grasp." (831-834)
Beowulf had achieved his initial goal of destroying Grendel, and he has his arm to prove it. This is the "Ultimate Boon" phase of the hero's journey, where the goal has been achieved.
“We have gone through a glorious endeavor And been much favored in this fight we dared Against the unknown."
This is the "Return" stage of the hero's journey, where the hero returns to his people and teaches them about what he has accomplished.
