Standard Route  Sucess!

A decent scramble. Sleeping Sexton later that day made the trip a lot more of a challenge.

Last of the Elk 14ers  Sucess!

Started out from the TH @ 5.16 with Faith & Rich. The closer one gets the more reasonable the route (SE ridge; standard) looks. Summited 11.31; :58 from the traverse/bottom of the 2nd gully to the summit. Summited @ 11.31. Clouds all over but none too threatening. Left summit @ 12.33. Down by 17.31. Tremendous views, esp. of Maroon (duh), & Capitol & Snowmass. Loved the way the route went from hiking to steep hiking to scrambling to the steepest climbing on the ridge crest to the summit- classic! Wonderful day on an extremely enjoyable route on a classic peak. Missed you at the summit, bro- there will be others!

Wow, that was as exposed as they say!

Favorite 14er  Sucess!

A great day with goat escort from base to summit. Good to return after getting snowed off in late September.

Standard NE route  Sucess!

A long and very difficult climb! Ranked or not, this is a challenging climb worthy of any serious mountaineer. We waited out a passing storm, making a 14-hour day. No route description can do justice to the complexity of this mountain.

4th classic traverse  Sucess!

I think n maroon has the hardest standard route of any CO 14er. little bear capitol blah blah, n maroon has many more class 4 sections. did the traverse unroped but every other party climbing only the N peak brought a rope. the traverse is definitely classic, with a lot of options...(a far) second only to blanca traverse in quality

North Maroon  Sucess!

a beautiful and interesting scramble. Not too bad, as long as you are up for it and climb with caution. One of the most beautiful place in Colorado

Ringing da Bells!  Sucess!

Left the TH very early and did this one solo. Climbed the Bell Chord and was nearly killed by rockfall triggered by frightened mountain goats while in the couloir. Went up South Maroon first and then traversed over to North Maroon. The whole experience was both physically and mentally challenging, but also very rewarding. The cruxes, while super exposed, were quite solid and fun to climb. The views from the top were/are astounding!

The Bell Cord and Travese  Sucess!

Great climb. Interesting descent via standard route of North Maroon. Follow the cairns!

Horrible migraine so all I remember is that I made it!

Great Traverse  Sucess!

North Maroon was a big, loose, icy, snowy peak on the day we climbed it. The descent was a bit hairy.

Maroon Traverse  Sucess!

Very nice scramble. Traverse is a little gnarly in places but doable by a confident climber.

South to North  Sucess!

Third 14er. It was nice and easy. We took our time because we were going to do Pyramid Peak the next day.

My Second 14er  Sucess!
