Pyramid Benchmark 8401

Elevation: 8,401 ft
Prominence: 381

This peak is not in the book.


This peak is one of twelve Idaho peaks with the word “pyramid” in its name. Three of the Pyramids are found in the Seven Devils Mountain Range.  Go figure. This one sits just south of another Pyramid Peak which has 280 feet of prominence. The third one is found farther north.

Climb the peak from the Black Lake Road where it crosses the peak’s east ridge. Purgatory Peak is to the east.
