First time for me attempting this peak,
according to my research class 1 and 2 hiking taking the south east approach.
there is no trail, might have some steep sections, poss. some slippery sections
Hike starting point from Hwy 190 where the road hits 3000 feet. about 17-18 miles from the Furnance Creek Jct.
quote from summitpost.org
"Pyramid Peak’s easiest, and standard, route involves about 10-12 miles (roundtrip) of cross-country travel over class 1-2 terrain, gaining about 3700 feet in the process. The vast majority of this 3700 feet comes in the last 2 miles as the route slogs its way steeply up the tired southeast ridge of the peak. The views along the way are stunning, the going is easy and reasonably enjoyable, and it’s unlikely you’ll see any living thing…at all – except for maybe a lizard or a snake…or maybe a bighorn. "
