Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: 9-17-2001
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.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
