NE ridge. One of my favorite routes of the 14'ers. Some very fun exposed moves.

Fun Hike! There were some really fun exposed moves and lots of goats. The goats followed us all the way from the boulder field to the summit and back down. Beautiful mountain with an awesome view...

The route was surprisingly good if you were selective in your path. Planned on doing the N to S traverse, but the weather wasn't cooperating. Thankfully we got well below treeline before the lightning started. Next time it's S to N!

GarethNE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2008

September 2004: I aborted my solo attempt to climb N Maroon at the traverse to the second gully due to the snow falling up high, the rain down low, the upper mountain being obscured in clouds...and a rumble of thunder overhead. I didn't feel like dying that day.

July 2006: Aborted my second attempt, this time with my sister, in the first gully due to the rain that was falling, and the fact that the upper mountain was shrouded by clouds.

August 2008: I returned with my sister and finally made the summit in perfect weather. As we were on the upper NE Ridge, we were dive-bombed by what was likely a golden eagle. This mountain haunts me no more.

Perfect weather. Getting down off North maroon was interesting due to the large amount of snow still covering the trail.

Climbed the Bell Cord (40-45 degrees)and proceeded to traverse to the N summit with Jim, Eric, and Ben. This traverse was so hairy with snow and ugliness we decided it was best to down-climb the 2000 ft North Face. Ben returned to the Bell Cord with Weston to snowboard down. North face is steep and required face in down-climbing and traversing (50 degrees?). LOCO and stressful but fun. Wow, see my pics before attempting this time of year.

Climbed the standard route on a chilly day. Took a spill on the way down the steep grassy ledges and bashed my shin worse than I ever have before. I was just happy I didn't start tumbling! Got my adrenaline pumping! Re-climbed this peak on 7/29/06 when I did the classic Maroon Bells traverse.

1/5/13 - 3 day expedition up Snowmass Creek. Climbed west facing couloir to Gunsight Notch and then more or less the NW Ridge to summit. Hell yah!

astrobassmanMuch better than South Maroon  Sucess!

A lot more enjoyable than its sister to the south. I think I'll return to attempt the traverse.

This was my second time climbing North Maroon. Some weather came in which drove away thoughts of doing the traverse. We used our rope to rapel a chimney on the way down. That same spot was no problem when it was dry on the way up.

This was my first time climbing North Maroon. The top few hundred feet were covered with snow, which made it easier.

From camp at Crater Lake, climbed the South Ridge of South Maroon Peak, performed the traverse to North Maroon Peak, then descended North Maroon's Northeast Ridge back to camp with my friend Keith. Descending North Maroon wasn't too bad except for one gnarly section of down climbing. We stood above that section for a while thinking, "that can't be the way".

utclimberBells Traverse  Sucess!
I climbed both Bells in a day, doing South Maroon first. The route finding wasn't too hard, and we left the rope in the pack all day.

Found North Maroon and the traverse to be relatively easy. I rappelled once, not out of necessity, but more because I'd have hated to carry a rope and not use it. Surprisingly, descending South Maroon was the hard part. I must've been off route. There were cairns around me, but the grass was so steep and slick I felt like I needed a "grass axe" to stop myself if I fell.

hans.schenkA Perfect scary day...  Sucess!

hans.schenk

We did this a few years ago and had a great perfect day. Both of my buddies bagged out before the top. But I climbed with a couple other guys. I have to admit I was pretty scared as the mountain kept getting harder and steeper. But it was well worth it!! We avoided the chimney crux by skirting to the right on the scree field and doing some class 4 ledges. We made it off the mountain before the afternoon rain hit.

we did both the bells on the normal route. My buddy B-fro got sick within a matter of minutes on our way down... he was looking really bad and said that he wouldnt go any further. So we snuggled up under some brush and low lying trees and spent the night right there. felt fine in the morning.

cp0915Traverse and NE Ridge Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007

With Andy. Quite fun.

There's gravel everywhere along the route, but the climbing rock itself wasn't bad at all. We stayed damn-near true to the crest along the entire traverse, car-to-car'ing the route in 9.5 hours. Solo'd everything.

Oh yeah, route-finding our way off of North Maroon wasn't nearly as bad as we were led to believe. There's an obvious trail for 90% of it.

Talked to a couple of guys who'd done the traverse the day before. Took them 15.5 hours in what they described as perfect weather. Not sure how that's possible.
