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.
