Comments: I hiked from tripyramids to Chocorua on 5-19-13 and when I saw the blowdowns after east sleeper I thought there is no way I am going through that!! So I kept hiking to the left of the worst of the blowdowns. I hiked to the left of the wind tossed root balls and climbed over the logs. When I sited Whiteface I hiked towards the same point and as I approached downes brook I was very careful to line up my path to the top of the valley to miss the steep sides of the drainage. It worked out perfectly =) I hit some ledges and headed to the right. I landed on Downes Brook trail and hiked for 5 min up to the Kate Sleeper Trail. It took about 45 minutes and the bushwhacking was not to bad. I met a group latter that day and they said it took 2 and half hours to go through the blow down section. If you are good at navigating by lining up a path by a mt in front of you and are comfortable b-whacking you should be fine.
