My friends and I attempted to climb Pyramid Peak yesterday, 11/3/13. We had a nice 4am alpine start, but ran into some tough conditions. There was no trail broken on the standard Pyramid route, and we were faced with approximately 1-2 feet of snow. It was mostly sugar, and there were some wind loaded gullies. Not quiet enough for an avalanche, but its getting close. High winds, blowing snow, and our off route trek forced our hand as we turned around at the top of the amphitheater. I have uploaded some photos of the climb.

Way to give such a beautiful and tough peak a try in hard conditions.


It was worth a shot.     11/07/2013 07:00
Thank you. We were hoping some of the trail would have been broken on the way up, but that wasn't the case. It was still a fun climb with nice views of the Bells though.
