Comments
Comments: Saw a total of 4 other people on the trails and about 10 on the gravel road section of Livermore Trail road (about two thirds mountain biking). The trek up North Slide was interesting, requiring concentration and with no sections providing a breather. I was grateful the conditions were absolutely dry. Given the moss on many of the rocks I can imagine the North Slide would be a dangerous challenge during wet weather. The walk between North and South Tripyramid went smoothly, one fairly large duck under that is now removed. The walk down South Slide required concentration and again I was grateful for totally try conditions and trekking poles. Meeting and talking with a gentleman who was finishing his 46th and 47th 4,000 foot summits in the over 70 age category was both thought provoking and inspirational. This was a challenging and beautiful 11 mile hike.
