Details

We will start from the Maroon Lake trailhead at 4:00 am.  Bring a good headlamp and a helmet.  See route description for Northeast Ridge on 14ers.com.  (https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=nmar2&peak=Maroon+Bells+and+Pyramid+Peak) Moderate pace means able to climb at least 1,000 vertical feet per hour.  Which means the ascent shouldn't take more than about 5 hours.  The group needs to stay ahead of the typical afternoon storms.  This is one of Colorado's harder 14ers.  Should have some prior experience doing 4th class climbing.           There is a new parking permit system in place at the Maroon Lake trailhead.  The permits for July will go on sale on April 12.  To purchase parking permits go to https://aspenchamber.org/plan-trip/trip-highlights/maroon-bells/reservations
