Everything the guide books say about this peak is true. You need good route finding skills, it is dangerous and the rock is loose! I did enjoy the climb even with all it's downfalls!

Awesome climb, snow conditions were good, not another soul on the route! The traverse was easier than I was expecting after all the "horror stories". I would definately reccomend it. Pics coming soon!

I have climbed the peak several times before but not on this route. At a cairn, on the west Maroon Pass trail, just before a creek crossing, the trail, yes, there is a trail, climbs steeply up to the ridge and then to the summit. Not nearly as difficult as the books say. It took me about 2 hours round trip from the west Maroon trail.

This was a hard climb for me. I sure hated it compared to North Maroon...very steep and loose rock. I mainly remember getting back to the car totally exhausted, too tired to even think of eating.

Great climb...but a brutal descent. I loved the last few hours of the technical climb...but coming down is horrible on your knees, feet.

What a cool climb. Not another person on the mountain.
