Traversed south to north with Scott B. Sunny and hot all day. The approach on the ridge seems to go on forever, but it is very well marked with cairns and never harder than class 3. 10 hours car to car.

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.
