Left home at 3:30am, started hiking 6am, got done 2:30pm (including some r/r by the creek), back home at 6pm.
Told ya I didn’t have much time.

Lyons creek trailhead- lake Sylvia- up the chute(?) to pyramid peak- took the chute down to the tarns- back up to ridgeline to Agassiz- price- Lyons lake- trailhead.

The chute down to the tarns was super easy. Can’t tell from the top of Pyramid peak and while you’re looking down it makes you question wether you’d want to go explore because the climb back up would suck if impassable but yeah, if you were wondering- do it. Easy.

Saw some people taking the ridge all way. The sketchy way? Didn’t really look at it up close
