Longest couloir in memory  Sucess!

A 4000 foot ramp to the saddle and summit. Runneled. Turned back from the base of the crux on the traverse due to thunder.

The Bell Cord Couloir and Traverse  Sucess!

Great climb. Descent from South Maroon back to the Cord was a little sketch. Climbing on the traverse was STELLAR.

For whom the Bell Tolls  Sucess!

South Maroon was a big, loose, icy, snowy peak on the day we climbed it. The traverse 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!

Geat hike. Not as much scrambling as I thought. The Treavse made it a great climb.

standard route  Sucess!

The 2800 feet to gain the ridge was the WORST! Except for that it was fun - but Pyramid is better.

Bell Cord and Traverse  Sucess!

This was an incredible but long day. I'm not sure if we took the hard way from the rock glacier on descent. RT 16:45
