Description

Pyramid Peak is best known for the ski descent that splits its face called Parachute. Its split northeast face is roughly 1100' of broken cliff.

The rock quality is typically very good granite and can offer some fantastic climbing. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of loose rock and occasional orange-ish intrusions of a lesser quality than the granite.

Getting There

No matter how you look at it, getting to Pyramid Peak is a grunt. The most straight forward is to drive to the Sherwin Lakes / Valentine Lake trailhead. Follow the trail past the Sherwin Lakes towards Valentine Lake. Once more or less directly across from Pyramid Peak, make your way across a seemingly endless talus field to its base. In winter this can be made much easier by snow covering the talus and doing the approach on skis, spring is even better as it does not require skis usually.
