nickLWest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2009


The miles seemed to fly by going from the TH to Lake Sylvia cause every time I slowed down I was raped by mosquitos! Nasty scree to climb above the lake, but I made good time to the top. Amazing views toward Lake Aloha! Luckily the wind picked up and knocked the little hell spawns out the sky for the hike back.

Got a late start and were pressed for time. No rest stops along the way, Lyons Lake Trailhead to summit and back. That last mile is a real test, was for me anyways. Great views. Our plan was to then traverse to Agassiz and return to Layons Lake Trail. But a late start prevented that. Started the hike at 12:45, not enough time for Agassiz today. Another trip along with Price

Date Climbed: Jan 5, 1979


This area was kind of like my backyard growing up. I've climbed Pyramid many many times. With a daypack, a full pack and slept in the rock shelter a few times. Once we were buzzed by a fighter jet. He flew so close we made eye contact, which elicited many "whoa dudes!" My friend and I skied to the top in Jan 1979, and it was wonderful. It's a great peak(and area)for beginners.

I hiked up to this great summit a few times when I lived in the Auburn area in the early 90's. It was my favorite peak in the Tahoe area, a fun hike and an amazing view.

Up from Sylvia to Pyramid then along the ridge connecting Pyramid - Agassiz - Price. From Price down to Lyons Lake and then back to Sylvia. Way fun adventure of a ridge with overhangs, peaklets, knobs, pine labrynths, and views to absorb. Good times with J.A.

npfisherPyramid via Lyons creek trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009


First time up it was a great (scary) hike. not easy for a novice hiker like myself. Wish I wore pants and gaiters. People weren't kidding when they said there wasn't a real trail past Lake Sylvia. Lucky we met up with a great bunch of hikers from placerville that led the way and knew what they were doing.

Deltakyp3rd trip, snowshoed this time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2007


My third trip, this time brought the girlfriend and some snowshoes via Lyons Creek trail and stayed at Lk. Sylvia as in previous 2 trips. Saw some disturbing 'not young or fit' skinny dippers in the a.m. as well as a CHP helo rescue on the western ridge. We scrambled up the North-Western face instead of the ridge route; better meadows north of Lake Sylvia.

Clear sky's and cool weather made for a great day. We could see the coastal range, Hyland Peak and Mt. Rose. On the way down we gave a toast to the mountain with our new friends Gino (the sore looser football fan) and his team of ageless wonders who had also made the summit.

Dayhike from Glen Alpine TH. After climbing Mt. Tallac traversed the ridge to Dicks Pk. Continued on to Jacks Pk and then Pyramid Pk before returning to the car which made for a very long day in a great area which I hadn't visited yet.
Some Photos.

My first trip up. I went up with my buddy PJ. Great views on a beautiful day. We could see as far north as Mount Lola and as far south as Sonora Peak. This was a fun climb. I think next time I will go up from Rocky Canyon.
