Description

Top rope route on the South face that follows the tallest line. Climbing 8-10 feet to the right is 5.9. Many variations exist to the left and right of the longest line. Good on a full moon!(rare on the coast)

Location

Pyramid Rock is north of Karen Rock and just before the northern formation with North Crack. It is well named as it does resemble a pyramid when viewed from the south.

Protection

2 stainless and one ring bolt on top.

Climbed twice today on two route variations. First went up the right side, into the tree. Got scraped up pretty good... don't go that way. Became quite balance-intensive and cruxy. Rating for that was spot on, 5.10b, maybe even harder.

Then, went up the far left side. Obvious crimps/jugs, solid slopers, and good feet. Climbed up to the arete, then used the arete to traverse over to the anchors. The only problem would be that if one fell, they would whip sideways over the rock. I'd say this felt more like a 5.8+ or 5.9.

Bolts seem pretty sketch, but hold. One is a spinning stainless steel bolt, the other a rusted out ring. It looks like there was a third bolt at one point in time, but it has since gone.

In sum, this is a good, fun face that has a lot of potential and rarely sees climbers. A welcome diversion if you want a change from Karen Rock. Apr 2, 2017

Bolts look like they could use some maintenance, only counted one stainless and it was a spinner. Feb 5, 2012
