Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Only one giant blowdown along the southern portion of Mt Tripyramid Tr. Easy to duck under. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: While Marlie and Brewer handled it like pros, I would not recommend the north slide for less agile dogs. Care should be taken to keep them away from the steeper slippery slopes. The south slide is better but still has some large steps to negotiate. 
Bugs: There were some annoying knats along Livermore Tr but at higher elevations a constant breeze kept them away. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Lots of wrapper corners and other debris along the trail. We picked up over 12 of the corners ans I found a few plastic baggies. There were two plastic bottles below the west outlook from M peak that I could not reach. 
Comments: I had forgotten how fun the north slide was! Straight up the side of the mountain and about the same width for most of the way. The slabs were dry affording numerous routes to scramble. The south slide was sandy as usual, although it seems to be getting a path worn in snaking it's way through the easiest sections. About half way up the slide there is a slabby section that is getting undermined and looks like it could break free after a heavy rain. I would not want to be below it. Along the ridge I noticed numerous "illeagle" places that people have been using to camp and have wood fires. One fire was even built at the base of a trailside tree. Perhaps some wilderness regulations should be stressed in this area.
