After North Maroon and Pyramid, this mountain seemed to be easy. Beautiful.
I climbed the traverse North Maroon to South Maroon with my 10 year old son.
A full trip report is below:
Climbed the traverse between North Maroon and South Maroon with my dad.
Great but tiring climb! Perfect day
A 4000 foot ramp to the saddle and summit. Runneled. Turned back from the base of the crux on the traverse due to thunder.
Rotten rock is not as bad as advertised.
beautiful day in the elks.. hour traverse to north.. climbed with pete.. surprisingly escaped weather most of the day..
Nice traverse; probably 2nd best next to blanca traverse. Tr here http://zoomloco.xanga.com/732717261/purple-mountain-majesties/
traversed in 45 mins.
have climbed Maroon Peak on its own and by doing the traverse. One of my Colorado favorites
there was snow and ice on the way up, was a cool climb
Great climb. Descent from South Maroon back to the Cord was a little sketch. Climbing on the traverse was STELLAR.
South Maroon was a big, loose, icy, snowy peak on the day we climbed it. The traverse was a bit hairy.
Very nice scramble. Traverse is a little gnarly in places but doable by a confident climber.
Geat hike. Not as much scrambling as I thought. The Treavse made it a great climb.
Nice hike. Great Goats!
The 2800 feet to gain the ridge was the WORST! Except for that it was fun - but Pyramid is better.
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
