Ascent Trip Report

Brian & I decided to do the Tri's for our last winter hikes this season we both started in crampons .I knew Sabbaday Tr had water crossing but I figured with no rain lately & freezing temps they wouldn't be bad.Boy was I wrong . In the lot we met 3 other guys & together we searched for spots to cross .1 guy had his 2 feet in water & I had 1 in for a second.
On way up Brian said we are taking Pine Bend down LOL.We made all the crossing.The last mile to Tripyramid Tr Jct the trail was steep & very icy.
We did Middle 1st talked to a few hikers on the summit We met 4 guys that had come up North Slide & were going do south slide 2 of them had no traction & I wished them luck.Then we hit South peak.
By the time we started over to North Tri we had the peaks to ourselves as there was no one else on the trails .Hit North had lunch & headed down Pine Bend very good decision. Road walk back to car was long but at least it was easy
I forgot my camera so took all my pics with my phone :-( ......11.8 miles 9.5 hrs what a great day to hike
