Maroon Peak
Elevation: 14,156 feet
Mileage: 10.0 miles
Vertical Gain: 4,600 feet
Route: South Ridge

July 31st, 2005

Maroon Peak, sometimes called South Maroon, is the higher peak of the famous Maroon Bells duo. From Maroon Lake it sits quietly behind its smaller sibling North Maroon, allowing North Maroon to appear higher. Maroon Peak was the final 14er in the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area for Amy and I. The standard route up the peak is only rated class 3, but reading many reports talking about long and complicated route-finding challenges, we didn’t put much stock in the class 3 rating.
