North and Middle Tripyramid

Hiked North and Middle Tripyramids on 1/21/2015. These were peaks 547 and 548 for “The Grid over 60”. Mike Lynch and Bill Cronin joined me on this hike. The temperature was about 0 F when we started but warmed up to the low 20s on the summits. It was a perfectly clear day with great visibility. The steep sections of trail were hard packed and we switched to crampons for the section up to North summit, they made it easier than just the spikes we had been wearing.

We made the quick trip over to Middle where there were also excellent views.

From Middle we went back to North where we had our PBJs. On the way down Mike and I made a short detour over to Scaur Peak which I thought was on the New Hampshire 100 highest list . Turns out it isn’t but it was an interesting side trip and we were still back to the car at 2:30.
