Mountain JimFrom North Maroon  Sucess!

Mountain Jim

I think climbing this summit from North Maroon is probably the most difficult of the popular routes on the 14'ers. Of course, that opinion might be influenced by the storms that kept blowing over us.

markhyamsS Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 1994


Did this after climbing N Maroon and Pyramid (not the same day). Seemed pretty straightforward after those peaks. I met a guy on top who climbed N Maroon and traversed over to Maroon in 4.5 hours. Not that impressive, you say, but he was wearing a full overnight backpacking pack! He was planning on sleeping on the summit. He had a goal of sleeping on all the 14er summits. I don't know if he ever finished.

Did the traverse and didn't start until 11am (logistics). At one point we were full on Easy 5th class, unroped for some reason to get up and over some pinnacles. Saw a dead mountain goat below and misssed the shuttle bus by many hours. Very long walk down that paved road at night after this traverse.

Toughest hike I have done so far. I was the first one up out of about 25 or so I past on the way down. I was too tired to do the traverse, and I was alone. Awesome views and great class 4 moves.

Early morning start and had solid snow pack for an excellent climb and magnificent views.

With Martin Nagel, his 4th and 5th 14ers. The traverse was a blast -- a bit tough and a bit airy at times, but it's all there, and fairly solid. We had some rockfall from some white-haired, bearded, four-legged mountaineers near the saddle. The descent was really long and not very interesting, but it was a spectacular day nonetheless. The scenery is unparalleled.

long, challenging hike. all the ledges and hand climbing after 13,300 feet was pretty interesting.

Quite a workout. I busted my butt fearing the monsoon's rath. 6 hour 40 min round trip from the trailhead. 51st 14er!

I had my first experience with the Maroon Bells today and it turned out to be a perfect day. A friend and I drove to the trailhead last night, slept for a few hours and then started at 3 am. We first climbed South Maroon Peak and reached the summit at 8:30 and then did the traverse to North Maroon and had a wonderful time. Due to some knee problems (my friend always has them and I had a stupid crash on my bike last week and hurt my knee) however, the descent was pretty grueling.

Great traverse! Didn't use ropes for rappels, mostly class 4 downclimbes with one or two low class 5 moves.

Attempt #2 within 3 days. Got better information and stayed on the standard route this time. Made it to the ridge, but found significant snow in a few places crossing the trail on the other side. The snow was questionable so, we went around as much as possible. Got within 0.16 mi of the summit (per GPS) when I got stopped by snow and a steep climb with a potentially deadly fall as the alternative. My partner made it, while I waited.

This mountain cut and bruised my body, tested my patience, and ended my hiking relationship with my hiking partner, but I'll be back when the snow melts! :)

Attempt #1: Lost the trail on the way up the ridge and ended up trying to get on the ridge too far North. Result, got boxed in, in a long gully. Backed out of the gully and headed further South, but it was too late in the day. Good call, about 3 hours later a storm came in.
