hiked up past Horsetail Falls to Pitt Lake, turned west and crossed over the 8000+ foot bump and down to Osma Lakes; climbed up to Southeast Ridge of Pyramid and followed it to hook up with the south ridge, which we took to the top. We came down the south ridge further and took Rocky Canyon down from the hanging valley below Pyramid to the steep downhill below 7200; getting out at a water tank on the east side of the creek just above Highway 50 (at 5900')
