Ascent Trip Report

After hanging out on the Middle Tripyramid peak we went on to the south peak. Somewhat similar to the portion of trail between the North and Middle peaks, getting to the South peak was not all to challenging with the exception of us starting to get a little tired. We made the south peak and started the descent to the Livermore trail. It didn't take too long until we were upon the south slide. Definitely nothing like the North slide, but still challenging to descend due to the loose gravel. We slowly made our way down with the occassional stops to get various stones/pebbles out of our boots. After a solid 30-45 minutes we made our way off the slide and back on to the trail. The trail ultimately becomes fairly level crossing multiple streams until you finally get to the Livermore junction. At this point we took a left and made our way back to the parking lot (took us about 45 minutes from that point). All in all a great hike with both the north and south slides being the biggest challenges and slowest portions of the day. The total trip took us a little under 7 hours. As noted by most, I would not to do loop in reverse due to the North Slide.
