Pyramid is in good condition for a mixed snow and rock climb. The snow begins about a 1/2 a mile from the Pyramid junction.

The basin below Pyramid is almost completely snow-covered. The first couloir leading up to the ridge is in great condition. After the ridge it is a mix of rock and snow, but mostly snow. Be very mindful about cornices when traversing. The last 400 feet of the climb is mostly on rock and went by fast.

We stashed snowshoes early on and did not need them, but depending on start time they may be useful in the basin. The North East Ridge gets sunlight starting at sunrise, so an early start is recommended. PM me with any questions and have fun.
