Scramble from Pyramid Creek via modified route on East Face, north of the couloir and Gefo Lake. Fun!

Either there wasn't a trail or I didn't find it on my way up Rocky Creek. I have never had to do so much bushwacking on a hike before.

Packing skis and boots, from Horsetail Falls, up east face to south ridge, then to the summit. Skied down Rocky Canyon to 50. Snow wet, heavy, slow.

Came in from Rocky creek with SMG and climbed the West Ridge with the intent of climbing the NW Couloir. Traversed over to the Couloir to take a look but ended up reaching summit using another route. Beautiful day and some great views.

Fought through Manzanita hell with skis on the back to get to the 8k mark. Terrible beta suggesting the hill between Rocky Canyon and Horsetail! Still managed to find the giant though. Excellent descent off the East Face but a lot of yo-yoing back to the epic Manzinita nightmare.

ElGrecoPyramid Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2011

ElGreco

Went up Rocky Canyon, camped out and then traversed round to the west side of the mountain to the couloir. Large snow banks and cornices had formed in the couloir. We avoided the steep (>60deg) snowbank by going around it. I measured the last section of the couloir before topping out at 53deg. Fun climb, and a good workout. The bottom section in the canyon was extremely slow going on the way up with waist deep wet snow, and nerve breaking on the way down falling through when snow bridges over manzanita bushes gave way.

My brother and I made a nice hike/scramble of the north ridge from our camp site on Lake Aloha. Be careful in the boulder field on the north face, you can easily dislodge a 200 pound rock inadvertently. Our descent on the NE ridge/slope was much easier.

Climbed via Horsetail Falls route, descended on the NE face. Amazing views, and the late spring snow allowed for easy glissading down to avalanche lake. Didn't see another person all day...

Headed back to Pyramid via Rocky Creek as part of the day's objective to visit Agassiz and Price. Very windy and below freezing all day. A bit icy on the north side of Pyramid especially. Cloudless and scenic visit.

First trip March 7, 2008
Stayed overnight at the inn in Strawberry, partly to avoid roadside parking issues. Walked up the road a short way to Rocky Creek, and up directly to the summit from there. Tested out a great new pair of snowboots I had, didn't even need crampons the whole way.

We climbed the peak from Lake Sylvia after camping there for the night. Came down the same day. Great peak. Beautiful views. Really cold, though.

First peak of the day, on a traverse of the "big three" from Lyons. Couloir can be a little sketchy near top. More challenging and fun than the west ridge.

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

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.
