Comments
Comments: My Plan A was to do the loop via the slides. But thanks to a completely wrong weather forecast, heavy fog made the north slide very wet and slick. I went part of the way up, but didn't feel I could continue safely in those conditions, especially solo. So I bailed and hugged trees on the way down, which was interesting in its own right. Two other folks I met did the same, but I did see others who went on. I'll return on a drier day.

Backtracking down, Plan B was up and down the south slide to South Tripyramid, where I was greeted by nothing. ;) This was much, much easier. The south slide was wet up top, but there are plenty of hand and footholds. This slide is more of a boulder scramble once you get above the gravel. I met an older gentleman who was on his way to East Sleeper this way, a route I wouldn't have thought of. We hiked up the slide together until the Kate Sleeper Trail. Very chilly and windy at the summit, I didn't stay long.
