The Maroon Peaks are rugged and technical fourteeners to climb. This route summits Maroon Peak and then traverses along the ridge to North Maroon Peak. Follow the summer trail up the south ridge to reach Maroon Peak. From Maroon Peak to North Maroon Peak traverse the ridge which will involve extreme exposure on both sides through loose talus and cliff ledges. There are 3 technical spires to overcome. It is mostly class 3 and 4 climbing with a few class 5 moves. Experienced route finding is a must. There are several routes to choose up the technical areas. The rock is very loose so test every hold. You can descend down the summer hiking trail or back track across the ridge.
