North America, United States, California, Sierra Nevada, Nameless Pyramid, East Face, Direct Finish

Nameless Pyramid, East Face, Direct Finish. The East Face of Nameless Pyramid (5.8) is a popular backcountry route, often done car-to-car in a long day. In July, Eric Tipton and I climbed the route, doing two new final pitches. From the notch on the ridge where the regular route eases in difficulty, we moved out left and climbed up via mostly left-facing ramps and comers. Our variation, the Direct Finish (III, 5.10a), ended at the base of the final summit pinnacle.
