Ascent Trip ReportDate is accurate to +/- 5 years.
My first attempt at Pyramid Peak. We got a late start from Wright's Lake and totally miscalculated how much trail it took to get there. Never made it out of the fores before we bagged the trek because there was no way we'd make the peak and back before nightfall. Hard to remember all the contributing factors as I reconstruct this 30 years later. Finally tried again and succeeded in making the ascent in 2013. Steve tells me he made it too.
