Took about 11h40 car-to-car in surprisingly good weather. The snow probably forces you to stay on the ridge crest more, which ups the difficulty. East-side snow was wet, soft, and avalanche-y as well, so I couldn't use it to my advantage. A fun route with great views, but not to be underestimated. Trip report.
A complete traverse on the 13th of August, 2010. A partial traverse from Thunder Pyramid to Pyramid Peak with Glen Maxson & Brian Miller and a partial from Thunder to Lightning with Jamie Princo, Jamie Nellis and Marc Milburn.
There's just something I LOVE about this ridge. The loose rock doesn't bother me or scare me but the views are out of this world. Definitely one of the better ridges in the Elks in my opinion. Would DEFINITELY go back and repeat this.
