Standard Route  Sucess!

Great way to start July! Standard route is steep and appropriately challenging, as advertised. Goats on N Maroon are friendlier than on Maroon or Pyramid, though still pretty bold. Hot day.

One of the best weather days I ever experienced..  Sucess!

With CMC group led my Mark SIlas. Blue skies, light breeze, fun route. It is steeper and more consistently unforgiving (if you stumble) than folks' photos make it look. If you hunt around, solid rock is fairly easy to find. The crux is straightforward.

Y couloir  Sucess!

When it's in, this is a really fun, steep snow climb, which gets a bit more shade than the Bell Cord or standard north face. Trip report.

North Maroon Bell with a group  Sucess!

This was a guided tour with 5 folk, including one solid climber. We day hiked in, after driving over Independence Pass. Probably the prettiest country I'd ever seen, and ever may. Bluebird day. Everyone made it to the top.

Bell Cord Couloir to Traverse  Sucess!

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.

Traverse from South  Sucess!

Climbed the Bell Cord to S. Maroon. Retrieved gear from the col and continued onto the traverse to N. Maroon. Descent off N. Maroon was precarious. Snow was REALLY BAD.
Traverse was exciting. One of the best ridge climbs I've done to date!!

A Long Time Coming  Sucess!

Had wanted to give this peak a try for several years. This year it finally worked out. We had great weather, and only two other people on the mountain.
