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.

Date Climbed: Dec 5, 2008


A beautiful peak in a beautiful area. Ran into hardly any snow and had unbelievable views from the top in all directions. This would be a sick ski when there's tons of snow on the ground.

Parked at the turnout just beyond the point where the creek crosses the road. The trail was about 100 yards east along hwy 50 on the east side of the creek and was very easy to follow the whole way to the summit. The views of the surrounding area are great.

SFMountaineerSoutheast face via Echo Lakes Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2008


Started the hike by taking the ferry around 9:30 AM. The approach to Lake of the Woods didn't feel too long. Don't underestimate the cross country portion through Desolation Valley, we sure did. Lots of route finding, dead ends, ups and downs, sides to sides, steep, toe crunching granite, and bouldering. The climb up the east wall above Pyramid Lake wasn't bad. We intended to curve around the peak and use the South slope to summit, but we climbed too high and ended up bouldering across and up the class 3 southeast face. By the time we made it to the south slope we were pretty much at the top. It felt pretty expose but the rocks were big enough that I felt safe, albeit full of adrenaline. If you like bouldering, go for it. It was 3:15pm by the time we left the summit, and we used our intended route back. Getting back to the trail took a long time, we missed the ferry back, and we made it back to the car at 9:30 pm with no headlamps and no moon (I used my iPhone's screen to illuminate the trail). Quite an adventure.

edevartEast Face via Pyramid Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2008


With K and the dog. Via Horsetail Falls and "the Lakes". Camped around 9000 feet on a shelf above Pyramid Lake. Then direct up the EAst face and down the Southeast ridge. Either route is a fairly straight forward boulder hop.

I was unable to find a summit register.

Date Climbed: May 22, 2008


Mark, Kurt and I departed the car at 7:00 pm. Near full moon. We made the summit at 11:30 pm. Departed the summit at midnite. Back to the car at 3:30 am. Very fun, especially at night. We did see some of Desolation illuminated by the light of the moon, but most of the time it was clouded over.

Spring ski tour. Ascended via Horsetail Falls. Descent via Rocky canyon. Upper south slope was a little boney but you could still ski a continuous line down the south slope from the summit.
