I got a good early alpine start for this one from my camp on the Pass. I probably started a bit too early, as I felt compelled to take a little nap amongst the rocks once I made it to the lower reaches of the Pyramid. A little Lego man in the summit cairn was my only company on the top. After descending the Pyramid, I hiked over to the Window for a special San Juan viewing session from a very lonely and dramatic place.
climbed this with my friend Mark. We found lots of snow in sections, bare trail in others. Had a nice cloudy experience on the summit but overall a great trip.
One section of the ridge, maybe 300' below the summit, was rock hard snow that deserved crampons and ice axe for safety.
Be prepared for the severely horse-trampled approach from Rio Grande reservoir.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
