trexkerry2nd time up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 8, 2014
lmost exactly one year from my first visit - once again up Rocky Creek, this time with my brother, snowshoes needed above 6700 feet to the top. There would have been no tracks to follow except a husband/wife team went up a couple hours before us except they made a wrong turn after crossing the creek and wound up too close to the eastern face and the steep snow, we had to correct the route and loop back, so anyone who goes up before the next snows may want to leave our tracks shortly after the creek crossing to cut down on the distance. Trip report is HERE

Climbed Pyramid creek route up and Rocky canyon route down. Lots of smoke from the Rim fire on this day. There is a $5 fee for trailhead parking at the Pyramid creek trailhead and self issue permits are available along the trail about 3/4 mile when you reach the wilderness boundary

Many moons ago now. With group of 4 high school buddies. Plenty of snow, but a shorts and t-shirt kind of day. Sunny, calm until the summit, and excellent views.

trexkerryWinter via Rocky Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2013
Hiked and snowshoed up to the top and back down the Rocky Canyon route, took 4 hours up and 2 1/2 hours down. Extremely windy on the last 500 feet to the top but otherwise a picture perfect day. Used crampons only near the bottom of the descent as teh warm weather resulted in some tricky ice near the creek. Trip report is at http://www.mountainhiker.org/trip_report.aspx?id=81

yosemiteforlife67great workout/climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 17, 2011


I did this hike/climb august/2010 as well as december/2011. The most recent trip to the top, had minimal snow and some ice, but most of the trail was clear and easy to follow. The last 800 feet of rock was pretty much clear. It was quite a workout, but always worth it. Both times i took rocky canyon.

McCannsterNew Years Eve Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 31, 2012


Following the unusual lack of snow in Tahoe, Ben and I did a summer-conditions ascent of Pyramid via the SE ridge on New Years. Great hike, weather, and views, brought me back in touch with my Sierra roots.

My first outing with Bay Area Mountaineers. The original plan was to snowshoe Ralston but there was little snow so we went up Pyramid instead, via Rocky Creek. 14 people. Bright sun, clear air, fabulous views.

bfalck1From Lyons Creek Trailhead
Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2011
Nov. 22 to Nov. 23, 2011. Our group of four planned to climb Pyramid Peak. We started at the Lyons Creek trail head. Wrights Road, which leads to the trail head from Highway 50 is paved but has grades which require an all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive vehicle when snow is on the road. The trail head has level and ample room to park at. The first half mile of the trail is fairly level and the rest of the trail leading to Sylvia Lake has a consistent grade from 6700 ft. to 8060 ft. We hiked when the trail had 12 to 18 inches of snow. The trail was barely visible most of the time. Look for the ends of cut trees that have been cleared as trail markers. Due to getting off course several times, it took us five hours to reach just below Sylvia Lake; carrying 30 lb. packs, 4.7 miles. The temperature was between the upper 20s to low 30s, very light wind and clear sky. Since the going was slow the first day, we decided not to try for the summit the second day and returned to the trail head in 2.5 hours.
