Description

Pyramid Peak is composed of the same maroon-colored rock as the nearby Maroon Bells. This rock is very loose and brittle, and requires great care when climbing on it. Because of the loose rock, Pyramid ranks as one of Colorado's toughest fourteeners. If the best route is taken, this is an enjoyable and beautiful climb with great views of all the Elk Range fourteeners, especially the Maroon Bells.
