Pyramidal Peak – Where several corries are formed on a single mountain, the mountain takes the form of a steep pyramid
(Pronounced pih-rah-mid-el peek)
A pyramid in the middle of the corridor was wearing a peak cap (pyramidal peak where corries meet).
A pyramidal peak is formed where three or more corries meet.
The glaciers carve away at the top of the mountain and this results in a sharply-pointed summit.
Pyramidal peaks include Mount Everest and the Matterhorn. An example of a pyramidal peak in the UK is Mount Snowdon in North Wales.
