Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: July 29 2002
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.
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.
