Comments
Comments: Very cold in the a.m., but otherwise bluebird conditions. Did this traverse counterclockwise. A group ahead of us broke out the Kate Sleeper trail, which was very much appreciated. Encountered another group on Kate Sleeper doing the traverse clockwise. Combined with our group, there is a nice track forming on Kate Sleeper, although snowshoes still very much recommended.

The descent from South Tripyramid along the slides to Kate Sleeper is very steep and a little sketchy; use caution. All the other trails in good shape. Very few postholes observed. Looks like people are getting the memo and using snowshoes.
