ktiffany22Standard route... easier than you think!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007


I totally agree with "Chicago Transplant" ...this "class 4" is WAY easier than people make it out to be! Of course, we (Jim and I) had help from 14er finisher/CO county highpoint finisher/El Paso County named peaks finisher/nearly state highpoint finisher, and all-around mountain climbing stud Kevin Baker ("Shnbke" -sorry if that embarrassed ya... you deserve a little praise!)... so "easy" is relative when you have a great route finder helping lead your way- thanks Kevin! OH, and THANK YOU CFI for a great trail leading up to the ridge!!!:-)

Jamie Nellis and I weaved our way up the standard route. I think started out too low in the "green rock" zone, but it worked out just as well. Seems there are as many routes as there are summiters on this one! I agree with the general sentiment that this is not as hard a peak as its made out to be, I never really thought there was any kind of sustained 4th class, just scattered moves here and there.

We went up the Northwest Ridge (which it seems no one does anymore) and came down the the Northeast Ridge. The overall hike is steep and I'd say the Northwest Ridge was the toughest 14er scrambling I have done- glad I didnt have to downclimb that ridge. Very loose rock. Would certainly wear a helmet.

We had a beautiful blue September sky for this hike. The views across the valley of the Maroon Bells were stunning. Woodie Hopper and I got off-track at the saddle but still summited via a little bit harder route.

A great peak. My opinion is that the difficulty of Pyramid is slightly over rated in dry conditions. I imagine rain or snow would certainly up the danger factor, but I had a great solo hike on Pyramid and was delighted by the curious mtn goat that greeted me at the saddle.

Great climb with perfect weather. We got off-track early from the saddle and climbed the green rocks from nearly its base. (Steep but more solid than the rocks to its right.) Awesome views. Climbed with Nord Sandstrom.

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2006


I was surprised at how easily this one went down until the descent. On the way up, I never felt any exposure or encountered more than the occassional class 3 or 4 move (except for a bit of sustained scrambling in the green rock band). On the way down it felt much more steep and loose. When I finally made it back down into the amphitheater, a massive rockfall came off the north face just to remind me that she's a big and grumpy mountain.

After setting out to do the Bells but sleeping a couple extra hours we decided to climb the mileage friendly, Pyramid Peak. What a great day. Not what the forecast read either!

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2006


Got a very late start but trucked up the mountain, The theater was beautiful with rocks falling everywhere. Weather was perfect and met a few pretty cool climbers en route.
Really a fun mountain to climb, nowhere near as hard as it is boasted up to be

I agree w/ many of the others that this is not as hard as it is made out to be, at least w/ the new work done by CFI. However, there was plenty of class 4 to be had slightly off-route. It definitely is as steep as its reputation, and an awesome mountain from any angle!

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2005


Climbed Pyramid Peak last August with my buddy Nathan via the Northeast ridge. A fantastic climb and my favorite on a Colorado 14'er to date! The rockfall hazard can get pretty bad if the route gets crowded which is what happened while we were there.

Great climb. New approach trail some folks were working hard on helps a lot. Found the route to be more solid than I would have guessed from reports, but was never behind/beneath anyone going up or down, that would have been maybe a different story. Fun climb, love the area. Aspen's a nice place to relax after a good day in the mountains!

Some loose rock up there, for sure. My favorite part about this mountian is seeing it from afar.
