Maroon Peak

7/21/17

Elk Mountain Range

Trailhead:  Maroon Lake Trailhead 9,600 ft

Route:  South Ridge II

 

This hike is a 10-mile loop with 4,600 feet elevation gain.  Hiked solo leaving the trailhead 4 AM.  Route finding was really difficult with a lot of loose scree and decent exposure.  Especially if you make a wrong term as you zig zag up the face!  Met a group of cool people around 13,500 feet and made it to the summit with them.
