Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parker on the north side of the Kanc near Lily Pond where a wide shoulder had been plowed. The TH sign for Livermore Tr was broken off from the snowplow so I fished it out from the snow and stood it against a tree.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All were easy. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are a few large blowdowns near Livermore Pass, and between North and Middle Tripyramid that will need an ax or large saw. Very few blazes along the way. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Marlie led the way on these lightly used trails. The crusty snow could cause an issue for some dogs. Not much unfrozen water on the ridge. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a blue Camelback water bottle on Pine Bend Brook Tr just north of North Tripyramid's summit. 
Comments: Just because it's December doesn't mean I have to put away the red marker yet. This was a nice although not the most interesting approach to the Tripyramids. About three inches of snow from the Kanc to Livermore Pass with a crust on top. South of the pass there was only about a half inch of snow. Up on the ridge there is only a couple of inches but it is mostly packed. I barebooted to the summit of North Tripyramid but put on the microspikes for the walk over to Middle and left them on until I was back on Scaur Ridge Tr. Saw only one other person all day.
