Trip Report

When JW and TJ invited me on a weekend ski trip either up White Pyramid or Cathedral Mountain I was more than ready to join them. We decided on May 1 2009 for a White Pyramid ascent. I didn't know a lot about this mountain, but I did know that it was a lot of height gain since it's next door neighbor, Mount Chephren has been on my "to do" list for while, and it's almost 2km vertical gain and not much higher!
