A walking track is constructed over the surface of a pyramidal structure having a square base of side 100 feet and base angles of the inclined faces equal to 60 degrees each. The track was laid as the shortest path from one corner of the base to its opposite one.
Is it feasible for a traveller who cannot negotiate a slope stiffer than 1 in 2 to undertake and finish walking uphill along the track?

Fixed the typo. Thank you.
As for using AYP instead of APH: I didn't notice this triangle in the sketch I made. It wasn't any more work using APH.
