Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.

Rio Grande Pyramid is a large pyramid-shaped peak that sits on the Continental Divide in Colorado's San Juan Mountains. It is one of Colorado's 100 highest peaks. The standard route climbs up the steep east face. Since the round-trip hike is over 20 miles, many prefer to backpack near Weminuche Pass. The views from the summit of the Grenadier Range and the Needle Mountains to the west is breathtaking.
