KerstinRocky Canyon route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2007

Kerstin

Hiked this route with Made in Tahoe. In spite of the 4000-foot elevation gain I didn't find this route to be as hard as I expected. This canyon is a botanical wonder, and the weather was in the low seventies and it was breezy. In fact, the wind was so strong on the final talus ridge that it was hard to stand up. The wind was so loud I wished I'd had ear plugs. My back actually started to hurt from bracing muscularly against the wind. But it was calm on the summit and the marmots were ravenous (no, I didn't feed them). What a view! I'll be back up there soon!

Easy to follow trail up to the peak, easy 1/2 day hike. 2.5 hrs from base to summit. Last day before the snow falls. Reno Hangover crew!

Didn't expect so many people up there this late in the season. This was probably my last chance for a trip before the snow sets in and I'd been wanting to go up Pyramid for a while. It was quite windy early in the day, though the wind decreased drastically shortly after I hit the summit. Definitely a brutal elevation gain, but this "use trail" was better than a lot of "official trails".

This was my 7X up this steep mountain. Perfect day with virtually no wind at the top. Excellent views in every direction.

This peak was teasing me, as I could see it from my workplace as a snowboard instructor at Sierra every day. Finally, I got some people who knew the trail and wanted to ride. The top of this hill is a great descent on a snowboard, with a lot of snow there is everywhere to go!!

My first class 2 - it made me feel like a little billy goat... y'know if billy goats spent time hugging rocks and looking generally shaky and unstable ;)

Dayhike from Lyons Creek trailhead. I somehow missed the saddle and accidentally climbed the "peaklet" that rises above Lake Sylvia. I returned via the saddle. Although the detour wasted time, this route was considerably more fun than the loose slog from the saddle.

Approached through Horsetail Falls and climbed East Ridge with little brother. Didn't expect substantial snow still on the mountain, but was welcome. Downclimbed the South Slope because we didn't have ice axes to glisade down the north slope snow fields. To the couple with the dog....Thanks for the chocolate.

Climbed the SE ridge via Rocky Canyon. Awesome views up top on a clear day. The elevation gain over such a short distance was tough.

This was a fun climb; we were on snow most of the way. Lot's of vertical over a short distance. Climbed with my buddy Brian.

I used to hike Pyramid fairly often when I was a kid, spending summers at Echo Lake with my grandparents. Pyramid hikes were always hilights of the summer: me, grandpa and our little bichon frise. A lot of peak baggers looked kinda disappointed to top out and find a 70 year old man, a 7 year old kid, and a puffy white marshmallow dog on the summit!

A perfect outing, we had the whole area to ourselves. A little extra snowshoeing on Hwy 4, but the summit was worth it!
