Pyramid Peak (11,758 ft.)

The name of this peak is unofficial, having been adopted in several references:
  • GoMammoth.com
  • SierrBackcountry.org
  • Bob Sumner's description of Sherwin Crest

    "Some twenty-five features in California - mostly Peaks, Rocks, and Hills - are called Pyramid because of their shape. Among these are two high peaks in Sequoia National Park and in Inyo Co., and Pyramid Head on San Clemente Island."

    - Erwin G. Gudde, California Place Names
