Quick Scramble  Sucess!

I enjoyed the quick scramble up Pyramid's regular route this past June while training for China.

mountain goats!  Sucess!

Spectacular views on summit....great climb with a whole colony of curious mountain goats including babies taking residence on the peak. One of them even made it up to the summit! Nice toaster with plug in on the summit...

Second Attempt.  Sucess!

Finally took this one down. Pretty loose, but you can keep it to 3rd class if you do good route finding. Find the green rock, stay in the cleanest rock and go up.

Climbed  Sucess!

Another class 4, very nice ledges, spicy exposure and I met with new people that become my friends and climbing partners.

First Elk 14er  Sucess!

Camped at Crater Lake with a friend and summited around 10:30am. For me going up was worse than coming down above 13,000. Loathed the clmb out of and back into the Amphitheater. Almost hit by a baseball sized missile of a rock.

That Cairn!  Sucess!

That GIANT cairn is easier to miss than you think when you are hiking in the dark. Over all not as difficult as I had imagined it would be. There is still quite a bit of lose rock to be found in the Green gully, one of our group took a baseball sized rock to the head. Thank God for helmets!

Fun climb, great view  Sucess!

Fairly quick and painless climb. Once at the saddle things get a little more interesting. Climbed the short C5 section at the broken tower then walked the ridge to the NE Ridge route, returned by the standard bypass.

Amazing views of the Maroons, Snowmass, and Capitol- couldn't see Conundrum or Castle due to the clouds. Rained halfway down, but felt great.

Hardest yet  Sucess!

For someone with minimal experience on rugged mountains such as this one, I'd say that Pyramid Peak was the hardest yet.

2nd Hardest?  Sucess! calls this the 2nd hardest 14er...I thought it was pretty easy.

West Face  Sucess!

New Years Day summit with impeccable weather. Felt more like April really. Climbed with John Prater, Dominic & Sarah Meiser and Dwight. One awesome day!

Indimidatingly easy  Sucess!

No other 14er in Colorado so far to me looks as scary from a distance but is so short, and suprisingly accessible close up. Will need to do in snow to see how that goes.

Std Route fun  Sucess!

Nice scramble from the Maroon Lake trailhead. We joked that some people miss the giant, easy to find cairn that marks the turn off for the Pyramid trail, but we somehow missed it ourselves. Only lost 10 minutes or so, but no biggy. Overall the route is very enjoyable and I really enjoyed the scramble.

goats!  Sucess!

Choss pile  Sucess!

Climbed NE ridge variation with Captain McIntosh. Got off route sometime after the saddle and ended up climbing the NE ridge proper and making plenty of moves we did not want to reverse on the way down. Followed the route on decent. Great day on the chossiest pile of a mountain I've yet visited. Million-dollar views of the Maroon Bells, Capitol and Snowmass.

Got shut down the previous day at the 13600' saddle by a pissed off hail-and-lightning-spitting mountain and later heard stories (from guys who continued to the summit) of getting ravaged by hail and lightning and crying in the fetal position during their decent through the amphitheater. When the mountain says no, it means NO.

Did I mention choss?
