Northeast Ridge


  • Pyramid Peak is a Colorado 14er in the Elk Mountains.
  • The summit somewhat resembles a ragged square pyramid and is visible from the Roaring Fork River valley north of Aspen along the canyon of Maroon Creek.
  • Like many of the peaks in the Elks, Pyramid Peak is quite steep. The peak's summit rises 4,000 feet above Crater Lake in only 1.2 miles.
  • The standard climbing route on Pyramid involves difficult route finding, high exposure, and a great deal of loose rock.
  • Hence it is one of the most difficult and dangerous of all of the standard routes on the Colorado fourteeners.
