Ascent Trip Report

We took Livermore Trail from Waterville Valley to Scaur Ridge Trail (skirting the North Slide) to Pinebrook Trail to Mt Tripyramid Trail, hitting all 3 peaks. On the Mt Tripyramid Trail, we went down the South Slide. A pretty fast elevation drop with a lot of scree, but once we were finished with the slide the rest of the trail was very nice. A real "Ying/Yang" sort of experience. I hated going down the scree and the Slide but the rest of the Mt Tripyramid Trail is one of my favorites.
