From Interstate 10 in Lordsburg take exit 22 and head south for about 1/2 mile and turn left on Cactus St. Drive for three blocks when the street ends at an unnamed cross street which may be Animas St. Turn right and head south out of town. After 2.2 miles cross a cattle guard and continue straight ahead. At 4.9 miles pass a ranch on the left and cross another cattle guard. The road turns toward the west with Pyramid Peak off to the left. At 5.8 miles pull off onto a dirt road on the right and park. UTM here is: 712000E, 3571437N. The peak is 2.45 miles on a bearing of 132 degrees. Hike directly toward the peak crossing two fences along the way. Climb up the slopes and stay to the left side of a small hill in front of Pyramid Peak and reach a saddle. Descend to the right and cross a fence running across the saddle. Then it is a straight line up the slopes to the top. The hike takes about 1 1/2 hours for the ascent and just over an hour down. 1/01 RLC
