"The climb [on the Dike] went without a hitch as we had the Rockies Ice Specialist Kris Irwin to lead two thin WI5 pitches, thus opening the passage to the moderate upper mountain," Welsted explained. "A dreamy line of single-swing neve led us to a huge gully which followed the dike the peak is named for. With two routes down, we figured we were ready for our main objective, the unclimbed central gully on Pyramid Peak whose 1500-meter face had drawn us to the range in the first place."
