a long haul up S. Maroon, traverse was fun, rope ? may be a good option for beginners, I felt very comfortable without a rope. Nice views.

Alex WoodBell Cord Couloir to Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2014

Alex Wood

Camped at Crater Lake the night before, left at 5:30am and got to the top of the Bell Cord Couloir by 9am (its a long climb, especially with no warm up). We did South Maroon Peak first (very easy from the saddle) and then did North Maroon (not as easy). Most of it seemed class 3+ with a few in your face class 5 moves. Awesome traverse though! Going down North Maroon was interesting. That was probably the hardest part of the day and the most worrisome part as well. There was a bunch of snow on the standard route so finding our way down was a little interesting at times.

KieferWonderfull Ridge!!  Sucess!

This is now in my top-3 favourite ridge climbs! TONS of 4th class scrambling and the 5th class sections were easily soloed.
Exposure was awesome! I seriously underappreciated this ridge traverse in the beginning.
But like Dan said for those comfortable, it's a 'candy store!'

The descent off North Maroon was heinous. Snow was complete shit.

11 hours with lots of stops for goats, drinks, and old man feet. Views as always are priceless.

Second time I summitted these. It's not the exposure, it's the rubble atop and in the cracks of the exposure that make me realize that I am getting spoiled on granite as of late.

Pete CastriconeA couple scary moves  Sucess!

...but not too difficult. Downclimbing S. Maroon to the saddle took maybe 10 minutes. Most of the difficulties are going up to N. Maroon. Locating the rappel station from below was the trickiest part, although another party on the route ahead of us skipped this section by traversing low on the left side. Having a short rope will prevent you from getting stuck if you get off track.

Big snow year held into August in 94. Static electricity threatened lightning, a helicopter searched for a fallen AK climber named Roger (sad day) and made it an unforgettable outing. Not that I ever forget ay time spent in the mountains.

Led a group of 5 up South Maroon Peak and three of us continued across the ridge to North Maroon. Very exciting and fun traverse with excellent weather and no crowds. Definitely one of my favorites :)

Very cool as long as you are careful of what you are grabbing hold of and standing on.

Solo traverse from South to North Maroon Peak. Enjoyable scrambling/climbing on a relatively solid rock with no route finding issues if you try to stay close to the ridge crest. For the final section, the direct ascent to the summit of North Maroon provides a more solid alternative to the standard way (traverse to northwest and going up water-stained crack and some ledges). Awesome route, incredible views!

DrewBNot so bad  Sucess!

DrewB

Not as bad as people say. The rock is good when it needs to be. We climbed the crux without a rope and didn't even realize what all the hype is about. I wouldn't want to be up there in bad weather, though.

Didn't take a rope. Climbed all but one of the towers. Took 90 minutes. My first of the 4 classic Colorado 14er traverses!

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2007

Dan Dalton

Really fun, but a little route finding is needed. Fun 5th class sections can be soloed. If you feel really comfortable on rock, this is like a candy store, easy rock and fun exposure. Highly recomened this, the rock is not as bad as they say!! Downclimb really blows though...

SawtoothSean

A dead Mountain Goat was an ominous sign, just below the north summit. We ended up in the dark, in the fog and on near vertical terrain. LED Headlamps were of little use and we finally made the paved road by about 4am and then had to walk the extra 10 miles down that-ugh!
