While the Livermore Trail had been beaten up by Irene, the North Slide was perhaps improved. The once slippery, mossy lower portion had been scrubbed clean due to sliding material and water, making for an easier ascent to the open portion of the slide. The upper part was perhaps a little more challenging due to some unsettled material.

On Middle Tripyramid, we bushwhacked to the southern ledges, from where there was an excellent Lakes Region view over the Sleeper Range.

The South Slide was slow going, as the storm had moved around dirt and rock.
