No other 14er in Colorado so far to me looks as scary from a distance but is so short, and suprisingly accessible close up. Will need to do in snow to see how that goes.

Nice scramble from the Maroon Lake trailhead. We joked that some people miss the giant, easy to find cairn that marks the turn off for the Pyramid trail, but we somehow missed it ourselves. Only lost 10 minutes or so, but no biggy. Overall the route is very enjoyable and I really enjoyed the scramble.

Climbed NE ridge variation with Captain McIntosh. Got off route sometime after the saddle and ended up climbing the NE ridge proper and making plenty of moves we did not want to reverse on the way down. Followed the route on decent. Great day on the chossiest pile of a mountain I've yet visited. Million-dollar views of the Maroon Bells, Capitol and Snowmass.

Got shut down the previous day at the 13600' saddle by a pissed off hail-and-lightning-spitting mountain and later heard stories (from guys who continued to the summit) of getting ravaged by hail and lightning and crying in the fetal position during their decent through the amphitheater. When the mountain says no, it means NO.

Did I mention choss?

Pristine snow climb from the amphitheater to the NE Ridge and glacial conditions in the amphitheater. Great couloirs this time of year. What a magnificent summit!

A few inches of snow fell the night before. A little different from my past experiences on Pyramid. Would've brought the microspikes!

Got off route a bit on the way up and got into some loose crap. The descent was fine. The view of the Bells from the top is great. Leah was with me which made the climb even better.

Loved the scenery, loved the "leap of faith," loved the ledges. Not too fond of the green strip of death or the kitty-litter covered ledge system higher on the mountain. Also, had a bit of a spooky experience with a mother mountain goat and her kid. She was coming at us with a slightly curious, slightly annoyed expression and an aggressive stance. Not fun on loose Class 3/4 terrain.

Second time summtting, this time from the south. Long day starting at UN 13,631 making for a long traverse. Last 4th class chimney topped off a great day. Still one of my favorite 14ers. With Kiefer.

Finished on Pyramid Peak after an impossibly long and mentally taxing ridge climbing from 13,631...2.15 miles south.
South Ridge is complicated, loose as all shit and in my opinion, not recommended.
Thank God we had great weather!!

Started up at 5:10AM and reached the summit after some mixed route finding at 9:42AM. Stayed nearly 40 mins on this rewarding summit this fine day and back to the TH at 2:40PM. My 50th 14'er...sweet!

It first seems that this is a formidable mountain, but the standard route is well cairned and the majority of the route to the summit is easy to follow. Incredible summit view.
