Route Climbed: Traverse from Maroon Peak Date Climbed: July 8, 2000  Sucess!

We were on the summit of North Maroon Peak at 12 - TOO LATE!!!! We learned this lesson the hard way as we were pinned down for a couple of hours waiting for a storm to pass. Ended up bivying on the side of the mountain all night in the rain as a result. Key to the Bells - an EARLY START!!!!! Beautiful, though

Not as hard as guide book's descriptions. The best veiws of the Maroon area climbs. Not a mountain for new climbers with allot of route finding, rockfall, exposure, ect.

Route Climbed: Traverse S to N Date Climbed: July 29 2002  Sucess!

Climbed with Scott B. The S to N traverse is hard, but this is the direction to do it if you don't use ropes, as you upclimb the hard class 4 sections. The route is well marked with cairns. Descending the N ridge is much easier, all class 2/3 except for one class 4 25 ft. chimney with good steps and holds.

Climbed this peak to summit in 1:43 from Maroon Lake. Also crossed over to South Maroon Peak, then back. Not difficult, but strenuous. Took less than 4.5 hours round trip for both peaks.

Second ascent of North Maroon and South Maroon and as nice as the first. Ascended the regular route from Maroon Lake, crossed the ridge between peaks in a total time of 2:24 then descended the south ridge of South Maroon to the West Maroon Pass trail, then took that to the standard ascent route to the summit of Pyramid Peak in about 5:00 and descended back to Maroon Lake in a total time of 6:40 . A tiring climb!

Fun hike with great views. The summit offered a nice view to some of Colorado's Classic climbs, ie. Capitol, South Maroon and Pyramid.
