Comments: It’s a tough time of year for Terrifying Tuesday, but Coach Stacy and I went for a little adventure on the North Tri Slide yesterday. We were able to get up it in spikes, but there were a few spots where crampons would have been helpful. The problem is the general inconsistency of the conditions, which is to be expected this time of year, but I’m not a fan of changing gear every 5 feet.

Livermore Rd: icy in some spots with the grooming remnants until the ski trail makes the right turn over the bridge.
Mt Tripyramid Trail: multiple feet of rotting snowpack, it’s a battle getting to the base of the slide.
Slide: a mix of everything, hard ice, soft ice, crust with water running underneath, bare rock, deep snow & postholes, etc.
Woods to summit: multiple feet of posthole misery
Pine (Pind?) Bend: this trail is a disaster
Scaur: multiple feet of posthole misery until about halfway down then wet leaves and running water

We got snowed on, rained on, sleeted on. Wouldn’t recommend going over here for a while unless you are comfortable with your gear, your footwork, your hiking/climbing partner, and your capacity for misery. We had a blast and laughed our asses off, but we are also slightly unhinged and have a warped sense of what constitutes “fun”, YMMV.
