From UN 13,631 with Kiefer and John. Cliffed out a couple times, but otherwise fun scrambling on incredibly loose rock. Continued on to Thunder Pyramid and Pyramid.

Second summit of this complicated mountain. Traversed from 13,631 on a challenging but worthy ridge.
Very loose.
Continued on to Thunder Pyramid and finally Pyramid Peak.

Climbed as an out-and-back from Thunder Pyramid. The class 2 gully was snow filled, then traversed some ledges back to the saddle with a little class 3 mixed in to avoid some snow in places.

SarahThompsonThunder Pyramid to UN 13631 traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2008


Climbed "Thunder Pyramid" via its standard route, traverse to "Lightning Pyramid" had a few 4th class moves, traverse to UN 13631 was considerably more difficult staying near the ridge crest. There were two extremely loose downclimbs involved and one very airy low 5th class move.

traversed from thunder. a rough, airy and tedious class four traverse, maybe even more difficult than the one of the bells. great adventure on an unforgettable day.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007


Climbed w/ Skasgaard, Shanahan, and Jamie N. Long, tedious traverse over mostly crap rock. Fortunately, for the really nasty moves, the rock was decently solid. Pyramid ridge is finally closed in my book!

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007


Traversed over from Thunder Pyramid. A nightmare of a traverse but oddly, a good route as long as you stayed ON the ridge crest. This stuff is SOLID class-4 with frequent class-5 moves on loose, rottn rock. Lightning has a small summit but the views of the Bells are amazing!
