Description

The Pyramid area is one of the warmest (south facing) crags in The Park. Most of the established routes are on good varnish which ranges from perfect white varnish ("White Dihedral") to great brown varnish ("Wrap that Rascal", "The Six Finger Fist). There are several very good crack and face routes. Recommended crack routes include "High Tops" 5.10a*,"Wrap That Rascal" 5.10b*,"White Dihedral" 5.7* (white varnish dihedral just right of High Tops) and "The Six Finger Fist" 5.10a* (the wide splitter 100 meters left of the bottom of High Tops). Good face routes include "The Snakeye Pillar" 5.7* (continuous, 4 bolts) and "Stink Finger" 5.10* (sport bolted, 8 bolts). There is a 3 bolt 5.7 called "Stink Steak" just right of the "White Dihedral."

Getting There

Hike up Rattlesnake Canyon past slabs and waterfalls for approximately 20-30 minutes past where the canyon turns west. Soon after turning west the canyon opens up and the Rattlesnake Buttress and The Bulkhead will be seen up on the left side of the canyon. 200 meters past this point you will see large slabby formations up on the right wall of the canyon. This is the Pyramid area.

The Pyramid is a broad southfacing crag on the sunny side of upper Rattlesnake Canyon. It is located a couple hundred yards past Rattlesnake Buttress, on the other side of the Canyon.

Hike up Rattlesnake Canyon. After 10-15 minutes the canyon turns right. The Pyramid is another 5 minutes further on, on the right. It's sort of a jumbled mass of cracks, slabs, etc. The crag gets sun pretty much all day. Mar 3, 2004
