Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: No one there when I started (it wasn't an early start either). On return maybe 5 more cars but most of these just walking couples. Police car checked it out as I was leaving. 
Surface Conditions

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First stream on Mt. Tripyramid to south peak easy by using the fallen tree just upstream. The next two were easy jumps just up or down from trail crossing, and we only shifted to keep Pepper's paws dry. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Big stag blowdown just up Mt. Tripyramid after first stream crossing, but just a step around. On Scaur delimbing made a few WB blowdowns easy to avoid leaving one double trunk RM for a step over. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Pretty easy day for the mighty tough little dog. He got two lifts from me on the south slide and then he made sure I couldn't do it again by quickly finding his own routes and then smirking at me from above.

Comments
Comments: Our plan to hike Moriah with another was cancelled (due to the forecast and Becca's trail report)so Pepper and I stayed close to home and had a wonderful hike; perfect for overcast skies after leaf out. We didn't see anyone else until we met the casual walkers down low. Just a dusting of snow on the trails up higher, and ice only in a few places. The south slide was a piece of cake, easier than in summer. I put microspikes on after the slide below the south peak, but really only benefitted from them a bit on the peaks, until I got to the wet ledgey steep areas of Pine Bend when they were pretty darn essential. Very little wind up high. Peaks in the clouds but a short ways below them it opened up. It was a great way to spend a part of another gray day.
