After being shut down on Pyramid a bout 3 weeks before, Tim and I decided to give it another shot. And this time (with no snow) we found success. What a peak! Very challenging!

Joined Eric for his 51st fourteener. Got an early start to beat the predicted thunderstorms and other hazards. Had the mountain to ourselves all day except for one mountain goat on the summit (8:30am). Ascended a bit climbers right which proved a little more tricky, descended easier route.

incredible and scary climb. We took a couloir and two large snowfields up to the 13000' saddle. From there we followed the standard route mostly to the summit. A 5.7 pitch or two was our reward for losing the route above the green rock. We descended the standard route where we could find it. Perfect day, awesome partners...

Challenged by route finding but made the summit. Sat on top on a beautiful day and watched a pilot in a glider circle the peak. What it's all about!

This is fun - at least once you get up to the saddle.

The route from the Maroon Bells parking lot is straight up. This peak also holds some special secrets for me as well.

One of my favorite days in summer 2009. My fiance came up to the shoulder with me and then I was alone to the top. http://www.14ers.com/php14ers/tripreport.php?trip=6808&parmuser=JB99&cpgm=tripuser

Hideous choss maze from Crater Lake. There were ducks once I hit the WNW ridge, and a mountain goat who knew the route.

Diggler

My last 14er (& climb) for this Colorado trip. Did with Faith (her 2nd 14er!). Left the trailhead at 7.11. Made good time. Interesting climbing from pass. While rock far from great, was really not too bad. Passed 15 people on the way up/down. Route-finding interesting- NE 'ridge' somewhat misleading, as the actual route sort of zig-zags up the path of least resistance. Summited at 11.59, & hung out for ~.5 hour before descending. Views great, & that of the Bells abolutely phenomenal. MUST do the Bell Cord Couloir (& Maroon-N Maroon traverse)! Clouds looked threatening upon starting descent, but turned out to be benign (we did see a few snowflakes which, however, soon ceased). Saw 1 or 2 herds of mountain goats (maybe 10 total), which I always feel blessed for (there was a cute little kid (literal) too!). Those things are amazing climbers! Back at TH at 4:20. Excellent day, amazing peak, & great company! 20 more to go.

This was my first Class 4 14er and it tested me mentally and physically. Climbed with fellow SPer, Alan Arnette, on the NE Ridge route. The biggest difference between this mountain and all others I've hiked/climbed is the last 1000' - attention to detail, hold tests, exposure just doesn't stop. Overall a great mountain!

Great hike/climb. There are some exposed and a little scary section, but reaching the top is definitively worth it!

Awesome mountain! Steep but not as difficult as I expected... tons of cairns up there. The view of Snowmass, Capitol and the Bells is incredible from the summit! A curious mountain goat followed me for quite a while during my descent.

Pyramid is a demanding mountain and requires your complete attention. The Green Couloir is probably the sketchiest part of the route.

CFI did a great job on the route up the slope to the basin and the entire route was well cairned. Very easy to follow.

What a great mountain and well deserved of its reputation as one of the more challenging 14ers.

Fun stuff - except that gully up to 12,800ft. :) Agreed - only a handful of class 4 moves on the summit ridge, and that's really only if you want them. The "easy route" is very well-marked with cairns.

This was an awesome treat for my first Elk peak. I would not suggest this approach, but I flew in from RI the day before and went straight to Maroon Lake, then got up at 4am and climbed Pyramid. The altitude didn't bother me too much but I was tired.

Summitted for approxamately 3 minutes (bad weather) en route on the traverse from Thunder Pyramid. Gnarly traverse. This mountain has some of the best views though!
