 Tripyramids Rematch 11-04-06
Date(s) Hiked: 11-4-06

Trails(s) Hiked: Sabbaday Brook, Tripyramid loop, Pine bend, Kanc Highway

Total Distance: 10.5 or so

Difficulty: Hard

Conditions: Snowy, high water at crossings.

Special Required Equipment: Stabilicers are handy!

Trip Report:

This hike started as a nightmare. The stream crossings on Sabbaday were very high and were tricky or impossible to cross. I had to bushwhack for an hour to get on the east side at one point! Views at the top were nice and clear. I opted to take Pine Hill down to avoid the evil crossings. Ended up taking a little half jog/walk along the kanc between trailheads! I did these VIA the North slide a few months ago but used my bike so they did not count towards the NH48.

Hey Marc,

I found the journey to those to peaks a lot more fun than the peaks themselves.

Had a great time playing on the North and South slide but was really disappointed with the views on the summits.

Gotta try from Sabbaday next time,
Bill

Just remember to bushwhack around those crossings :) They are pretty well documented, but not as well documented as they are despised by me!

By any chance do you carry a GPS and have the bushwhack track?

If anyone is looking for GPS tracks, I try to bring mine on as many hikes as possible and have several maps I'm more than willing to share

I did have my GPS but I did not have the GPS portion on (I only really use the barometric altimeter as its accurate enough for me! Also it triples the battery life to have the GPS reciever off!)
