This was a great peak to climb. It has many different views to get pictures. I never thought about creating a web page for this peak. If I have some extra time I will attempt it but if I would have to stayed out of the mountains. Thanks for the compliment.
Pyramid Peak is not an official High Peak because it does not meet all of the standards of the High Peaks. when the Marshall Brothers and their guide Herd Clark were looking at their maps they decided that a "High Peak" Must have three things:
1) It must be above 4,000 ft.
2) It must rise more than 300 vertical ft from the nearset High Peak(at least I think it is 300 ft)
3) and it has to be ( I think) 3/4 miles from the nearest High Peak
I am not sure about the 300vft or the 3/4 miles. I can not find the book that has all that information in it. those numbers is what I remember.
Interestingly, the Marshalls and Clark used a map that later proved inaccurate. Unlike the AMC's White Mountain list, the 46er club decided to keep the list unchanged. You'll notice that the last 4 of the 46 are actually under 4000' and that McNaughton (4000') is missing.
Oh, and only Adirondack peaks are included. There are two 4000ers in the Catskills too.
But this one fails both prominence and separation criteria on my map.
