Lots of snow, treacherous in spots. Aaron and I were among the first to climb the Maroon Bells that summer.

There is a half inch or snow on top and off an on fog. I'ts actually realitively clear as compared to our view of South Maroon. We were going to do the North to South traverse however the clouds and snow are conspiring against us. Inspite of ir all its actually a very beautiful day to climb.

Snow and ice above 13,000 ft made for a fun and interesting climb. 4th class crux may be hardest move on any 14er standard route.

xskier77Route Climbed: Traverse from South Maroon Date Climbed: June 12, 2004  Sucess!

The traverse from south to north was one of the best 14er traverses I've done. Last week we did Little Bear/Blanca and this traverse was so much different. The route finding was pretty easy for the most part although we may have made a few mistakes because we wound up climbing some definate 5th class rock. The traverse took about 2 hours and the summit of North was one of the best summits I've been on.

This mountain will require your absolute attention but it's a great one. The first time I laid eyes on it, I didn't see any possible way a human being could get up to the summit. The funny part was, after I climbed it and was looking back at it, I had that same thought running through my head. It's that good!

Surprisingly nice day out there on Saturday. The Bells were gorgeous deep reds from the recent precipitation. I would imagine they got a dusting of snow on Saturday night & Sunday. A TR is available here.

The traverse is everything it's cracked up to be. Challenging and rewarding with a fantastic position between two amazing mountains. A TR is available here.

We were on the summit of North Maroon Peak at 12 - TOO LATE!!!! We learned this lesson the hard way as we were pinned down for a couple of hours waiting for a storm to pass. Ended up bivying on the side of the mountain all night in the rain as a result. Key to the Bells - an EARLY START!!!!! Beautiful, though

Not as hard as guide book's descriptions. The best veiws of the Maroon area climbs. Not a mountain for new climbers with allot of route finding, rockfall, exposure, ect.

Climbed with Scott B. The S to N traverse is hard, but this is the direction to do it if you don't use ropes, as you upclimb the hard class 4 sections. The route is well marked with cairns. Descending the N ridge is much easier, all class 2/3 except for one class 4 25 ft. chimney with good steps and holds.

This was #36 (of the 54 Colorado 14ers) for me and one of the first scary ones. Went with a guide service and loved it. I did not have to find the route and they roped me in on the couple scary parts. Scenery of couse in the Maroon Bells is always fantastic!!!

Climbed this peak to summit in 1:43 from Maroon Lake. Also crossed over to South Maroon Peak, then back. Not difficult, but strenuous. Took less than 4.5 hours round trip for both peaks.

Second ascent of North Maroon and South Maroon and as nice as the first. Ascended the regular route from Maroon Lake, crossed the ridge between peaks in a total time of 2:24 then descended the south ridge of South Maroon to the West Maroon Pass trail, then took that to the standard ascent route to the summit of Pyramid Peak in about 5:00 and descended back to Maroon Lake in a total time of 6:40 . A tiring climb!

We did this climb on our day off while working on a Colorado Trail Crew at Buckskin Pass. What a great break from the trail crew labor! :) Of our group of 6, all but 1 bagged the peak. It was a tough climb but the day was beautiful.

Fun hike with great views. The summit offered a nice view to some of Colorado's Classic climbs, ie. Capitol, South Maroon and Pyramid.
