KieferCord to Bells Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2014


Climbed the Bell Cord to S. Maroon. Retrieved gear from the col and continued onto the traverse to N. Maroon. Descent off N. Maroon was precarious. Snow was REALLY BAD.
Traverse was exciting. One of the best ridge climbs I've done to date!!

long day. Climbing up to the south ridge is very steep despite the new trailwork being done. After that, the route is unlikely looking but well marked with cairns. No difficult climbing but you definitely need to pay attention for loose rocks. Going down from the ridge was also very unpleasant.

Enjoyed this route solo from the high/white rock saddle (climbing partner not feeling well). This peak wasn't as exciting as widely advertised, but nonetheless is a burly, physical mountain. Classic Elk Mtn terrain: Steep and loose with some complexity to the route-finding. Had the summit to myself. Ran into one solo hiker on my way down, then four guys. Had to stop for 10+ minutes to sooth an angered nanny goat with three kids. She wouldn't let me pass, gave me stink eye, came toward me...I seized the high ground and finally got past her, but she followed me for quite a while to make damn sure I was gone and off her mountain! BBQ at Hickory House afterward. Yeah!

Dangerous ascent to first saddle as there was a LARGE group below us. Once we passed that point we all breathed a sigh of relief. Started with 6, picked up another who wanted someone to hike with, all made it to the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2013


One of the rap stations was well hidden at the bottom of a thin gap. We got lucky finding it. If we would have had to downclimb it would have puckered my cheeks, but with two short raps it was not that bad.

After North Maroon and Pyramid, this mountain seemed to be easy. Beautiful.

A 4000 foot ramp to the saddle and summit. Runneled. Turned back from the base of the crux on the traverse due to thunder.
