Comments
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.
