From camp head north-west over a large flat clearing and towards a slight drainage feature between the lower south ridge and a "ski hill" tree area to climber's right. Head up the obvious lane way for about 500m before gaining the south ridge of South Pyramid before the climber's left cornices appear. Once on the ridge follow it all the way to the summit of South Pyramid while avoiding large over hanging cornices to the climber's right.
From the summit of South Pyramid ski down the northern ridge line to gain access to the south ridge line of North Pyramid, follow it all the way to the summit.
From the summit you have several options for skiing but it is best to aim for the line that heads between the two cliff bands below the face.
To lap use the east ridge of South Pyramid to do a big loop of both summits. If heading back to camp you can use the large flat bench below the North-East Face of South Pyramid.
