On the NW face of Pyramid Peak, start in a short finger crack downhill and left of the big corner in the center of the face (Desolation Angel, 5.8+). Up and traverse left to the base of a steep corner. Follow corner, going left at its top to a bowl and another dihedral. Alpine feel, ends right on the summit. Approach the peak from Lyons Creek Trail.

Best quality of the 5 routes I put up in the late 70s on this face and the separate buttress to the north.
