Comments: What a day folks, 4 peaks, 2 full tilt faceplants, 3 hard buttplants, 11 miles in 9 hours, well thats what several miles of bushwhacking does to the mileage average. 2 people ahead of us also in snowshoes who turned around on North Tripyramid so we broke out from there to Midlle Tripyramid and when we get back down to just above the Sabbaday jct my friend was like you wanna go do Fool Killer? Couldn't pass up the offer so we hung a right down Sabbaday which hasn't been broken out in awhile and lets say that the top half mile where the trail is the old slide was some wicked spicy snowshoeing. We started the whack at the 3100' contour and then began angling up and to the right in mostly open woods after crossing the brook drainage and only had to zig zag left around a couple small conifer patches and came out right at the canister which is a nice shiny newish one that I easily opened. From here we went down the south ridge of the summit and then angled south to southeast down to Sabbaday Brook Trail at 2100'. Was mostly open woods except for one thick patch we encountered from about 2500' down to 2200' and when we almost got to far southwest dropping off the ridge. Sadly the trail was broken out by postholio here down to Sabbaday Falls, so womp, womp sad snowshoeing where we smoothed out the trail a little? Scaur peak is a cupcake open woods whack with an easy to find canister that opened with a little persuasion.
